Reason #1,465,327 Why My City Rules

Special Saturday post because I’m excited about the news that came out last week – for the second year in a row, Washington, D.C. is officially ranked as the most literate city in the United States!  (Read the USA Today BookBuzz article here.)  The rankings are based on factors such as number of bookstores (and we have some awesome indies, like Kramerbooks and Politics & Prose), library resources, newspaper circulation and internet resources.

I love living in the D.C. metro area – I love the sunshine, the free museums, the great restaurants, music and theatre at the Kennedy Center, and this news just reinforces why I love this city so much.  No wonder I was drawn to D.C. – it’s a city of readers!

    • Thanks! 🙂 I do take partial credit, since I frequent the indie bookstores near my workplace! My favorite one, Kramerbooks, is always crowded!
