Delhi Is The Most ‘Well-Read’ City, And We Have Chetan Bhagat To Thank

Sunaina posted on 28 December

With the Jaipur Lit Fest coming up, this is some good news Dilliwallas need to hear. According to the ‘Annual Reading Trends Report for 2016’, a survey conducted by Amazon, Delhi has emerged as the most well-read city in India for the fourth consecutive year!

Bengaluru and Mumbai follow right after.

What is Delhi reading you ask? One of the highest selling books is Chetan Bhagat’s One Indian Girl. Le sigh. Other than that, JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child {parts I and II} have also made phenomenal ripples in Delhi’s literary world. Now that’s a good read!

Other books that have made a mark in the country are Word Power Made Easy written by Norman Lewis, and Mujhse Bura Koi Nahi by Surinder Pathak.

Apart from your usual literature-friendly cities, Karnal, Vadodara and Patna have also entered the list of the top 20 well–read cities. Three cheers for these underdogs!
