DC read more than any other city in the US in 2012, according to a study conducted by researchers at Central Connecticut State University. The District topped the list, beating number two Seattle for the third consecutive year.

Results were based on number of bookstores, education levels, newspaper circulation, local magazine publishing, and Internet and library resources in cities with 250,000 or more residents.

Virginia Beach and Baltimore rounded out the top 20 in 17th and 19th places, respectively. Check out the full list on CCSU’s website.
