Where are the bastions of intelligence in America?

Amazon compiled a 20-city list, the online book retailer gathered information for cities with populations of 100,000 or above, tallying data from sales of books, magazines, newspapers and eBooks since last June, Reuters reports.

Amazon took a closer look at the specific types of books piquing readers’ interest in each locale, as well: residents of  Berkeley, Calif., ordered the most travel books, while folks in Boulder, Colo., focused on health. In Alexandria, Va., readers went big on romance, while Cambridge, Mass., residents ordered the most business and investing materials.
