Literacy is in the eye of the beholder

It’s that time of year again, when we all wait with excessive anticipation to find out which cities have more avid readers than anywhere else. And the winner is…Seattle, likely because there are more Internet resources available there than anywhere else. Although really it’s not that much different from Minneapolis (last year’s winner) and as such, hardly a surprise.

New York doesn’t appear anywhere in the top 10 — in fact, it comes in at 32 and a half. Yup, it tied with Philly.

Looking at some of the other statistics, San Francisco is the top city for bookstores, St. Louis leaps from 15th to 1st for libraries, Newark is the place where people are most likely to read a newspaper (jumping from 37 the year before — WTF?)and Colorado has the highest proportion of overeducated folk than anyone else.
