Top Ten Literary Cities

In yesterday's USA Today, the book section of the paper rated the top ten literary cities. Can you guess?

Here they are in order:

Minneapolis
Seattle
St. Paul
Denver
Washington, DC
St. Louis
San Fran
Atlanta
Pittsburgh
Boston

Is your city on the list? I was a bit surprised by a couple of these, but some like San Fran and Boston were obvious to me. I read an article a few weeks ago that said San Fran was one of the fastest growing literary cities.

TGIF! What are your weekend plans? I'm revising CB and reading a new book that I got yesterday--Guerrilla PR. Next week, I'm going to review Donald Maass' The Breakout Novel, so stay tuned for that.

Hmmm...New York didn't make the list? That's interesting.

Weekend plans including writing as well. Since I have a nice 4-day weekend that requires no traveling. Gotta love the holidays!

How could they leave out Portland, Oregon -- home of Powell's Bookstore (the quirkiest and possibly largest independent bookstore) and the Wordstock Book Fair??

My city did not make the list. :( Maybe they should've put Minneapolis/St. Paul as one and given us an additional city? And, I'm like Emily Marshall--no New York?? Very interesting!
No kidding about NYC! I was really shocked. I'm excited, too, about the long weekend, Emily. :)

I agree about Oregon!

Barrie, yeah, they really could have combined those two. How sad that no southern cities (aside from Atlanta) made the list.

Hi Jessica,
I love your blog! I was wondering if you could send me the link to that usa today article. I can't seem to find it. I've been doing some travel writing of my own and am starting to do some research on literary travels.

thanks! Lacee
Hi, Lacee! I don't have a link to the article, sorry! I only saw it printed in the actual paper.

Good luck finding it! :)
