Amazon has released its annual list of the most well-read cities based sales of print and Kindle books per capita. Take a look at the top 20.

Madison leaders hope Amazon will consider the city for its new headquarters.

The CEO of the Madison Region Economic Partnership, Paul Jadien, says the city pitched five sites to Amazon.

Amazon put the call out for proposals last month.

“We tried to stay with the menu that Amazon provided with preferences and I think the city of Madison did a wonderful job of answering a lot of those questions and partnering with us in getting this submitted,” Jadin said.

The decision on the second headquarters location is expected to happen next year.
