Hm. Apparently, Minneapolis is the most literate city in the U.S. From the breakdowns of the survey by category (newspaper circulation, booksellers, etc.), it looks like it got there by being pretty good in lots of areas rather than dominating across the board.

I wouldn’t know anything about that, though. I read a book once, but it was a long time ago. Some days I feel like Exhibit A in the “Rotting Brains Through The Power of Video” seminar they present at conventions for media executives. And I don’t even have Tivo yet.
