Website says Portland is America's best city for book lovers

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Any city boasting a book store that can rightfully claim to be a city of books has to be America's best city for book lovers.

And according to one website, it is.

Livability.com voted Portland its no. 1 city in the U.S. for book lovers.

The photo featured next to the ranking is Powell's Books, also known as Powell's City of Books. The report fawns over the Burnside bookstore, while also noting authors like Jean M. Auel, Beverly Cleary and Walt Curtis have once called the area home.

Spokane, WA, came in ninth on the list, thanks in large part to the city's literary landmark, Auntie's Bookstore.

Go to Livability.com for the entire list.
