Seattle fourth in best-read cities list

The Associated Press

For the third straight year, Alexandria, Va., has topped Amazon.com’s list of the best-read cities.

But Seattle’s fourth-place ranking isn’t anything to sneeze at.

The online retailer announced Tuesday that Alexandria, where many government workers from nearby Washington reside, ranks No. 1 for sales of books, newspapers and magazines in cities of 100,000 people or more. Miami was second, with residents there especially eager for books and magazines on self-help, health and mind-and-body topics. Knoxville, Tenn., was third; followed by Seattle; and Orlando, Fla.

Rounding out the top 10 were mostly college towns: Ann Arbor, Mich.; Berkeley, Calif.; Cambridge, Mass.; Cincinnati; and Columbia, S.C.
