  2. Cambridge, Mass.
  3. Berkeley, Calif.
  4. Ann Arbor, Mich.
  5. Boulder, Colo.
  6. Miami
  7. Arlington, Va.

  10. Salt Lake City
  11. Pittsburgh

  15. Columbia, S.C.
  16. Bellevue, Wash.
  17. Cincinnati
  18. St. Louis
  19. Atlanta

Rankings were determined by sales data of book, magazine and newspaper sales - in both print and Kindle format - since June 1, 2011. The numbers were weighed on a per capita basis for cities with more than 1000,000 residents.
