Ceci n’est pas une electoral map.

October 6, 2008

This is not an electoral map, but a map of America’s reading habits. People in red states read more right-leaning books, blue states more left-leaning books. (Correct-leaners are not depicted on this map.) The actual map on Amazon is interactive. You can see what political books are most popular in each state, and see how reading patterns have changed over the last few months. Interestingly, America has become more polarized in its choice of political literature as the election has drawn closer.
