DC is #2!

Washington_Monument USA Today came out today with a list of the most literate cities in the U.S. This year, Washington DC knocked out Minneapolis for the #2 slot (usually Seattle and Minneapolis take the top two slots). Yay, Washington, DC! The factors that go into determining the top 10 are: "newspaper circulation, number of bookstores, library resources, periodical publishing resources, educational attainment and Internet resources". Click through to the article to see if your city is on the list.

I am not surprised to see DC high up on the list. There are lots of great book bloggers in the area too – Swapna of S. Krishna's books, Jenn of Jenn's Bookshelves, Michelle of Galley Smith, Serena of Savvy Verse and Wit, and many more that I am sure I am leaving off. (If you're a DC book blogger, leave me a comment!)

We are full for the EDIWTB book club for Between Here and April, which I announced yesterday. My gmail account did something odd this morning (deleted a whole bunch of email), so if you emailed me sometime between Tuesday night (late) and this morning around 9, could you resend me your email with your address to gweiswasser@gmail.com? Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience!

    Thanks for sharing! I see that Portland, Oregon made the list. I don’t live in Portland, but it’s nice to see that a city in my state made the list.

    Between Here and April is an excellent choice for your online book club. It is probing and thought-provoking; I loved the writing style and thoroughly enjoyed the book. Can’t wait for Copeland to write another…. I will post a very long overdue review when I get a chance. Happy Reading!
