Miami Shoots Up to Third on Amazon's "Most Well Read Cities" List
Yes, Miami sits only behind Alexandria, Virginia (a D.C. suburb), and Knoxville, Tennessee (home to University of Tennessee), on the list. Cambridge, Massachusetts, home of Harvard, University, actually sits one below the 305 at fourth place.
Of course, the rankings are merely based on sales data. Cities are ranked according to how many books, magazines, newspapers and Kindle titles are purchased in the city per capita. Only cities with a population over 100,000 are included.
Though, according to The Miami Herald, Amazon says the two most popular book genres purchased in Miami are romance and self-help books.
Fifty Shades of Grey was actually Miami's most popular book, but that was true for Alexandria and Knoxville as well.
