Book Buying Patterns In US Are Surprising

New York City Ranks Low On Book-Buying

New York City residents, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer report analysis published in The New York Times, spend less than the average Americans on books.  It is hard to believe, given it is the cultural and publishing capitals of America. How could Houston and Phoenix outdo NYC?

According to the study, Seattle residents outspent all on books. San Francisco was up there. So were Philadelphia, Boston and Minneapolis.  Scoring low was Miami, as well as NYC, San Diego, Dallas, Atlanta, Cleveland and LA.  NY is apparently tops when spending on status goods, but when it comes to buying books it ranks low.
