Amazon has released a list of the most well-read cities in America, based on the data they have compiled from book, magazine, newspaper, and e-book sales. And it only seems appropriate that my e-book empire is headquartered in the number one well-read city: Cambridge, MA! Here is a preview of the list:
- Cambridge, Mass.
- Alexandria, Va.
- Berkeley, Calif.
- Ann Arbor, Mich.
- Boulder, Colo.
Here is some of the other data and fun facts that they shared:
- Not only do they like to read, but they like to know the facts: Cambridge, Mass.–home to the prestigious Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology–also topped the list of cities that ordered the most nonfiction books.
- Boulder, Colo., lives up to its reputation as a healthy city by topping the list of cities that order the most books in the Cooking, Food & Wine category.
- Alexandria, Va., residents must be reading a lot of bedtime stories – they topped the list of the city that orders the most children’s books.
- Summer reading weather all year long? Florida was the state with the most cities in the Top 20, with Miami, Gainesville and Orlando making the list.
