NEW YORK (AP) - A new study released by Amazon.com notes that college towns are prime spots for readers.

The online giant ranked Cambridge, Mass., as the country’s best-read city. That’s the home of Harvard University.

Alexandria, Va., is in second place. Schools including George Washington University and Virginia Commonwealth University have satellite campuses there.

Next were Berkeley, Calif., and Ann Arbor, Mich. They’re both cities with a strong campus presence.

Amazon’s list of the top 20 most well-read cities of populations 100,000 or higher was announced Thursday.

It’s based on the retailer’s print and digital sales per capita of books, magazines and newspapers.
