Feature Friday: Amazon's Most Well Read Cities in the US

From Galley Cat:

Amazon complied the fourth annual list by examining sales data of all book, magazine and newspaper sales in both print and Kindle format from April 2013 to April 2014, on a per capita basis in cities with more than 100,000 residents.

My current hometown made the list, but not the top ten.  Considering how many cities there are in the US, I guess I can't complain.  Here's the full list:

Amazon’s Top 20 Most Well-Read Cities List
1. Alexandria, Va.
2. Miami, Fla.
3. Knoxville, Tenn.
4. Seattle, Wash.
5. Orlando, Fla.
6. Ann Arbor, Mich.

8. Cambridge, Mass.
