Hats off to Delhiites, especially the bookworms, for retaining the title of Amazon India’s Most Well-Read Cities List. Keeping the fort high even irrespective of the tough competition given by Bengaluru and Mumbai, Delhi has held the title intact for the third time in a row.

Woot woot! Delhi is not just about street food and shopping, there is much more to ‘Dilwalon ki Dilli’.

A couple of new entrants like Ahmedabad, Surat, Bhubaneshwar, Vadodara, Ernakulam & Vishakapatnam have found a place in this list. Congratulations!!! Readers for this new feat.

While these cities are rejoicing, Lucknow and Coimbatore couldn’t keep up with the pace and are witnessing a drop in their ranking.

‘Scion of Ikshavaku’ by Amish Tripathi is the bestselling book of 2015 in English and Hindi category. Chetan Bhagat’s ‘Half Girlfriend‘ slid down to the third position, unlike last year. The Eight position is retained by APJ Abdul Kalam’s ‘Wings of Fire’.

Why am I not surprised to find ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ topping the chart in Literature and Fiction category? ‘The Girl On The Train’ was a most famous book under crime, mystery and thriller genre.

I have to buy this book now, ‘evil grin.’

Unexpectedly, the examination category has emerged as a third most popular category. Well, books are not just confined to fiction, classic, biography genre.

Marathi style has found the audience in non-metro cities and has found a place in this list of 2015.

Well done!
