"How well does your city cultivate literate, 'bookish' behavior in its citizenry?" -- Fear not, fellow Bostonians, we're #8 in bookwormitude! This U. of Wisconsin study ranks Minneapolis #1, in a top ten devoid of NY, LA, and the other usual metropoli. Some notes: St. Paul in MPLS' twin, but it ranks 16th, how is that possible? NYC is bested by Tucson, Akron, and Virginia Beach, hee hee! And note that the entire Bottom Ten are located in CA or TX. Hmmmmm...in any event, I suggest we celebrate with a city-wide spending spree at my favorite local bookstore, woohoo!
