Mega online bookseller Amazon.com has released its "Most Well-Read Cities in America" list for the second year in a row. The ranking is based on book, magazine and newspaper sales both in traditional printed form and e-versions for Kindle. Cities eligible for ranking had to have more than 100,000 residents. Chris Schluep, Senior Editor of Books at Amazon said, "It’s great to see that we are truly a nation of readers, with representation on this list from every region of the country.” In tandem with the list, Amazon issued summer reading recommendations for adults and for children.

Speaks well of SLC. I am pleased to be a native born Utahan and a resident of a city with such a high culture rating in many areas.
