Amazon.com announced its third annual list of the most well-read cities in the U.S. yesterday, which according to Amazon's press release is based on "sales data of all book, magazine and newspaper sales in both print and Kindle format since June 1, 2012, on a per capita basis in cities with more than 100,000 residents."


Here are the results:

  2. Knoxville, Tenn.
  3. Miami, Fla.
  4. Cambridge, Mass.
  5. Orlando, Fla.

Lists like this are fun to see, even though this particular one captures only Amazon customers.  Avid and voracious readers live in cities and towns all around the country and purchase books from many sources--and borrow reading material from libraries and friends as well.

Enjoy life with books...
