Apparently there are two qualifications.
You must be able to read and give an opinion.
If I'm awake, I have an opinion. And after spending most of my life having people ask me to keep my opinions to myself.... well, you could understand how giddy I am that someone is asking--perhaps begging--for my opinion on something.
And reading... I read the cereal box at breakfast. I read in the tub, while I blow dry my hair, on the treadmill and as I go to sleep at night. Shoot. If I could figure out how to read while I sleep, I'd not only be a millionaire to all the other over-achievers, I'd be a happy girl.
