USA Today shares that Minneapolis is the most literate city in the US, according to an annual survey.  

Dr. Jack Miller, president of Central Connecticut State University, conducts the study and measures literacy through citizens' use of local bookstores, educational levels, Internet and library resources, and newspaper circulation.

According to the study, the top three cities -Minneapolis, Washington, and Seattle - have never ranked below fifth place.

For me, the scariest finding from the study is that while Americans are becoming more educated, they are also becoming less literate.

That's a very scary prospect for writers.
