SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego is the most well-read major city in the United States, online retailer Amazon.com announced Tuesday.
San Diego's ranking among cities with a population of 1 million or more came in Amazon's fourth annual Most Well-Read Cities in America list, released as a kickoff to the summer reading season.
The ranking was determined by compiling data of all book, magazine and newspaper sales in print and Kindle formats from April 2013 to April 2014, on a per capita basis.
"Our annual Most Well-Read Cities list shows that reading continues to be a passion for people from coast to coast," said Sara Nelson, editorial director of print and Kindle books at Amazon.com. "This weekend marks the start of the summer reading season, so we hope customers find a great book to enjoy and help contribute to their city's well-read status."
The full rankings, with cities of populations of 100,000 and up, was led by Alexandria, Virginia, which bought the most books per capita overall. The only California city in the top 20 of 100,000 and up was Berkeley, which was seventh.
Amazon.com said the most print editions per person were delivered to Cambridge, Mass. The highest rate of Kindle purchases was in Knoxville, Tennessee.
