Monday, February 18, 2013 - 11:09pm

Reading is not apparently El Paso's strong suit.

That's according to a study by Central Connecticut State University.

They ranked El Paso the fourth most illiterate city in the country.

The rankings are based on newspaper circulation, percentage of adults with a college degree, median income, and the number of bookstores per 10-thousand people, in which El Paso had the least.

The most illiterate city ranked was Bakersfield, Calif.

The most literate was Washington, D.C.
