    Plus points
    - It's a big city (and a popular pastime)
    - .co.uk looks to be unavailable (already developed)

    Minus points
    - It's a .org.uk
    - It won't qualify for the .uk

    What do you think?

    If you're doing an info site about Reading (the town), or reading(the activity) then fine.

    Many towns use the .org.uk for their official sites, so an unofficial one may fit in.

    For reading, something along age-group activities may work.

    Any place of its size you’d expect to get offers every few mths but have you had many? Geo’s seam near to impossible to monetise successfully (has anyone?) I’m sure you could find a punter at high xxx low xxxx though personally I’m not sure dual meaning does it any favours? I’d prefer any other town/city with the same population in org.uk. The other meaning be hard to break into and not sure anyone would want to put in the money needed with an org.uk
