It seems like someone is ranking some facet of city-life every other day, but I thought it was nice to see our lovely cities ranked for their bookishness (only Seattle squeaked in between them!) With our great libraries, two fairly strong newspapers, and independent booksellers like Micawbers, Common Good Books, Magers & Quinn, and Wild Rumpus I guess it's no surprise that we get some quality reading in! Oh yeah, and the winters too. See the rankings and the story here.
