America’s Most Literate Cities 2006

Filed under: books,bookstores,San Francisco — Towse @ 9:10 pm

Someone came through yesterday looking for information on America’s most literate cities. The click on the post from August 2004 went to a 404 site. (Click since updated.)

The most recent information I could find were the 2006 results which showed, among other factors, that San Francisco has the number two slot in booksellers (behind Seattle, WA) when the following factors are considered

  • number of retail bookstores per 10K pop’n
  • number of rare and used bookstores per 10K pop’n
  • number of members of the ABA per 10K pop’n

Overall, San Francisco is #9.
