You were always a dreamer and books were your pathway to all the new worlds you could explore. After years of trying you finally managed to get the one job you always wanted at the best bookstore in town! Now you can be surrounded by books all day! But please remember you just can’t leave customers hanging so you can find out how that bestseller ends! Your boss might just not let that go if it happens a few too many times…

Update: 24/5/2018 - Added a Bookstore Clerk Teen only version of the mod
The stats are all the same as the original mod except that it's from 4PM-9PM so that your teen can attend class and then work
You can use both mods at the same time btw.
Update: 26/06/2018 - Updated for Seasons
Update: 07/04/2019 - Update for Strangerville pack


Hello again! I'm a huge book lover and my Writer Sim was in need of a part-time job to sustain her writing time.. so I was working on a career to help her when I remembered this career from S3! It was just what I needed so I pretty much remade it for Sims4. With a few changes here and there to flow better~

The career only has 4 levels and it's a Monday-Friday/2PM-7PM sort of part-time job.

Mod created with patch version 1.42.30.1020. I think you only need base game to play with it, but not totally sure (as I have all packs XD)

To play with the career: You’ll need to put all files from the zip in your mod, except the “Neia_Careers_Commons.package” if you already have it from one of the Neia’s careers. You only need one of those in your mods folder.

I want to eventually do a longer full-time career (maybe Bookstore Owner? I think I need a better name..), but atm I'm working on finishing a Filmmaker career with 2 tracks and I have plans to do a Psychology Career next. >_<
So I think my Bookworm Sims will have to wait a bit... >_< Lots of ideas, too little time!


Please let me know what you think about the career or if you experience anything weird~ !


More details about the part-time job next!

I'd love to be able to use this mod, but WinRAR keeps telling me it's either in an unsupported format, or damaged.

Yeah, I did... I had this exact same problem with files in the past, and one I recently got to open properly after updating WinRar. I might try that again, but first, I've gotta get my brain in gear from the big announcement today! LOL!

You could maybe make a Publisher Career as the fulltime version of this. And have the Sim start from Level 2 or 3 if they've already been bookshop clerks (but on the teen career)

July 31 patch broke Neia's career commons. She has updated it, and it looks like anything made with it needs to be updated as well.
