What’s most sad about this survey is that Dallas, where I live, ranks 48 out of 69. How embarrassing. I’m trying to do my part in keeping literature alive in Dallas. I belong to book groups, spend inordinate amount of time in bookstores and persuade (or downright pester) friends to join in my book groups. I’m not giving up.
At least I saw this other story about a couple and the book group they belong to in Midland, Texas, which gives me some hope about literature in Texas. I’ll take what I can get.
Is your city on the list? Where does it rank or where do you think it should rank?
