    Piccadilly Books, Ltd.

    I've been a subscriber to Writer's Digest for almost 3 years and I've always kind of noticed the ad in the back about making up to $40 an hour reading books. I've thought about doing it to make some extra cash but I was hoping to get your opinions first. Has anyone had any bad expierences with this company? I appreciate the help.

    Setting aside for a moment that any company advertising in the back of WD is generally suspect, which Piccadilly Books are we talking about? Do they give a website or where they’re located?

    Ah, then I bet it's a pitch to sell you their book: http://www.piccadillybooks.com/make-...ding-books.htm

    If this is the usual scam, it'll be a book or sheet full of addresses of companies who may possibly, maybe, conceivably want readers, but almost certainly won't when you give them a call to ask.
