Do you think we can really determine a well-read city by book sales?ReplyDelete
I use the library and receive books from publishers. :)
Love my library.
Thanks for stopping.
I suspected that Austin would appear. We are a reading city here, but we also have a very large university and are the state capitol. And I'm not surprised that Seattle and Portland are on top. Lots of rain in that part of the country and lots of opportunity to hunker down and read. :-)ReplyDelete
LOL about the rain and hunkering down.Delete
Thanks for stopping, Kay.
How interesting! I'm with you Elizabeth with wondering if book sales really truly reflect reading. If you just looked at my book buying habits you wouldn't think I read very much at all!ReplyDelete
I agree. It would appear that I do NOT read at all. LOL!!Delete
I rarely buy books. I use the library as I said.
Thanks for stopping, Katherine.
My town is too little to even be considered.ReplyDelete
Awwww....little towns are cute, though.Delete
Thanks for stopping, Debbie.
My brother lives in Seattle. My State did not even make it on the list. Closest city to me is Chicago.ReplyDelete
My state or city didn't make it either.Delete
Thanks for stopping, Nise.
This is an interesting list! I'm glad that "my city" is on the list (well, sort of).ReplyDelete
It is interesting, but I question how they did it. :)Delete
Great your city is sort of on the list. :)
Thanks for stopping, Suko.
Nope, my city didn't make it either.ReplyDelete
Charlotte, NC is the closest to me. SC didn't make the list. :(ReplyDelete
