What American state holds the honor of having the most bookstores?
According to a new Publishers Weekly report, California has the largest number of bookstores total, but it’s Montana that has the most per capita. The Big Sky State, with a population of only a little over a million, has more than 60 bookstores.
The Publishers Weekly report counted every kind of bookstore in a state, including chains like Barnes & Noble, big-box stores that sell books, and independent and Christian bookstores. The data looked at the bookstores present in the US during 2012.
