Geography of Reading
"Dr. Wilson's book presents a kind of 'cultural relief map' for the whole country against which the library is projected as a social agency which makes more effective the work of other agencies. Among the findings...is that if a state or a region ranks low in libraries it usually shows a similar status in respect to other media for the dissemination of ideas."- Bulletin of the American Library Association, Vol. 33, no.7, p.466.
