Atlanta is the nation's fifth most literate city!

" width=

For the third time in four years, Atlanta is one of the nation's top-five cities for literacy. The ranking is based on local newspaper and magazine circulation (yay for Creative Loafing!), library data, online news readership (thanks, Fresh Loaf!), book purchases and educational attainment.

Minneapolis and Seattle were tied for first, followed by Washington D.C., St. Paul, San Francisco and Atlanta.

According to this story, the data for the 2008 rankings came from the U.S. Census Bureau, American Booksellers Association, Audit Bureau of Circulations, Yellow Pages and other sources.
