Reading was ranked a top place to live.
According to one real estate blog, Reading natives reside in one of the best cities in the state of Massachusetts.

Movoto Blog used a variety of criteria to rank the top ten cities in the state to live in. The eight pieces of consideration were cost of living, crime rate, high school graduation rate, median household income, median home value, amenities per capita, amenities total, and the year the city was established.

According to the blog's criteria, Reading is the No. 2 place to live in Massachusetts, behind only Marshfield.

"Numbers aside, Reading is an idyllic community to raise a family—safe, affluent, at least 220 miles away from New York," the blogger wrote. "Even without the most Dunkin Donuts per capita, Reading does get some pretty sweet credit for Cupcake City, home to some of the best cupcakes in New England."
