Having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a library card, but in many cities, libraries aren’t the only places to find good reads.
So which literary destinations should bibliophiles consider when planning their next reading adventure?
To (book)mark National Family Literacy Month, Lawn Love ranked 2022’s Best Cities for Book Lovers.
We compared the 200 biggest U.S. cities based on access to public libraries, bookstores, Little Free Libraries, book clubs, and events.
We also looked for cities with the most books “in the wild,” random reads picked up by random bookworms who can track the books’ journey and engage with other bibliophiles on BookCrossing.
Check out the 10 bookmarked (and 10 dog-eared) cities for book lovers below, followed by surprising findings from our report.
