The online retailer announced Tuesday that Alexandria, where many government workers from nearby Washington reside, ranks No. 1 for sales of books, newspapers and magazines in cities of 100,000 people or more. Miami was second, with residents there especially eager for books and magazines on self-help, health and mind and body topics. Knoxville, Tennessee, was third; followed by Amazon’s home city, Seattle; and Orlando, Florida.
Rounding out the top 10 were mostly college towns: Ann Arbor, Michigan; Berkeley, California; Cambridge, Massachusetts; Cincinnati; and Columbia, South Carolina.
