I'm not too sure what do you mean by "this city is 67% book" (googled "100% Buch" thinking it might mean something in German, but nothing came up), but this sounds so badass I kind of want to visit your city now to see the books.

we NEED to develop the Book Rating measuring world cities based on Book percentage. This is too cool and too fun to ignore!

If we were to devise a formal algorithm, we could then implement it using some public API to estimate the Book percentage for any city. Your city can be used as base for tests (it should always return 67%)

@saint-images I think the meaning is direct, like you'd say "this chocolate is 70% cocoa" (source: my city is also about 70% book)

pike's got it right, it was just a fun and hyperbolic way to say "there's a lot of books in this city", but I love this idea of a "Book Percentage Rating" (BPC) XD

I guess that the easiest way to derive our percentages would be to assign a certain amount of points to every kind of library/book shop/swap spot, add those points up, then divide by size/population of the city, but then you would disregard the books in people's home. Since internationally conducted surveys would use up incredible sums of money, we'd have to make an educated guess of average book per person by using

existing data, like maybe average income and average level of education to test disposable money and likelihood to read respectively, though I'm not quite comfortable with the latter, cause based on my experiences with grammar school kids, that connection is pretty weak ;P
