Amazon Lists Top 20 Most Well-Read Cities in America

Today Amazon counted the Top 20 Most Well-Read Cities in America. The list analyzed “data of all book, magazine and newspaper sales in both print and Kindle format since Jan. 1, 2011, on a per capita basis in cities with more than 100,000 residents.”

The complete list follows below–much to this GalleyCat editor’s dismay, does not include New York City. Maybe this means New Yorkers spend more time shopping at bookstores?

Check it out: “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 … Florida was the state with the most cities in the Top 20, with Miami, Gainesville and Orlando making the list.” (Via Publishers Lunch)
