Amazon.com’s new list of the most “well-read” American cities reveals a shocking fact about one of Washington’s southern neighbors: Alexandria residents love their books as much as they love their smut.
Alexandria residents bought more books per capita from Amazon than people in any other American city, which the e-commerce site claims makes Alexandria the country’s most well-read city.
But don’t think Alexandria is highbrow now——this is saucy stuff. While Gone Girl was Alexandria’s top book, the second, third, and fourth best-selling books were all in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.
