I Need to Move

I saw this article today and found out Seattle is the most literate city in the U.S. Unfortunately I’ve never been to Seattle but it’s on my list of cities to visit.

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?
