The top slots have been distributed pretty much as expected, meaning dear New York is in at number one—we have lots of agents swarming about, a strong presence of publishing houses, the Pulitzer Prize, yada yada—with London closing in at a seemingly close second. The remaining ranks are a little bit more surprising, however: Reykjavik, Iceland and Norwich, England are in the mix, as is a place in Wales that I never heard of before, but, upon Googling, learn that it's often referred to as "the town of books." Now I feel dumb.
As they say, if it worked for Carrie Bradshaw, it can work for you! And this concludes today's segment of "Inspiring New York Tales."
