It seams to have literacy rate of different U.S.A cities is almost same and it is hard to announce about which areas of the United States are “more literate” than others. But actual data on the matter shown off by Amazon at the basis of its records on Thursday.

The company tallied all book, magazine and newspaper sales in both print and Kindle format since January 1, 2011, on a per capita basis in cities with more than 100,000 residents.

It found that academic hub Cambridge, Massachusetts, topped the list of cities that purchased the most reading material, as well as the most nonfiction books. Boulder, Colorado, purchased the most material in the Cooking, Food & Wine category. And Florida had the most cities in the general top 20.

Here is the full list of the most well-read cities in the U.S., according to Amazon sales data. Adjust stereotypes accordingly.
