|Their #3 is my #1 city|
Who doesn’t like a good list? And if you’re hanging out here, then you also like a good book.
So when there’s a list of the 20 most well-read cities… I don’t know about you, but I sure get excited.
My only quarrel: it’s based on Amazon sales, which completely neglects to factor in library use. And some of us are huge library users!
(In Amazon’s calculations, I’m a reading lightweight!)
But anyway. That’s what this list is about, and we’re gonna roll with it.
So in this Amazon sales contest, Seattle’s the winner, but my all-time favorite city comes in a highly respectable 3rd.
Then I started thinking of cities that are literary because of their culture, rather than just their online book-buying habits, and I found this article, which lists the top literary cities in America.
And this list, I liked even better. It’s even got Iowa on it! The literary cities list looks like a great list of travel destinations.
What’s your favorite literary city?
