Some interesting book-related lists have been published recently--including most literate cities, most romantic cities, and best fictional libraries.  View these lists by clicking on the links below.

Washington, D.C. retains its hold on the number 1 spot in USA Today's Top 50 American Literate Cities.  My home city, New York, rose from number 22.5 to number 21.  How did your city fare?

Amazon.com's Top 20 Most Romantic U.S. Cities list is based on its sales of love-themed books, movies, and music, and certain wellness products.  Knoxville remains in the number 1 spot for the second year in a row.  New York didn't make this list--did your city?

Flavorwire.com published a list of Flavorpill's Best Fictional Libraries in Pop Culture, featuring photos and illustrations of libraries from movies, television, and books.  My favorite on the list is Harry Potter's Hogwarts Library.  Did any of your fictional favorites make the grade?
