Odd Jobs Quiz – guessing closed

We all know that being President is a great responsibility and, really, who would want the job, even with the power rush?  Let’s see if you can match these other unusual jobs with their character and book.

You have until noon Sunday to submit your answers as a comment.  Comment will be hidden until I post the answers.  No Googling! The person with the most points this round will win a B&N gift card (total $ based on # of total participants, so please play) and a randomly selected participant will win a fun prize from me.
