I love this image above, it is so me....If you know me you know this is just the way I am, if you love me, you will let me be like this ;) Just saying..
So recently, Kindle India revealed some interesting eBook reading trends for the year 2016 based on actual consumption in the country. I was surprised of course yes, but then, with books, it's so much about personal choice, preference, taste and even marketing, that one can't really have a general attitude on it. Check this out...
According to Kindle India, some interesting facts that emerged are:
Chetan Bhagat’s One Indian Girl is the ‘Most Wished For’ and ‘Most Borrowed’ on Kindle Unlimited
The top bestsellers were:
1. Cometh The Hour by Jeffrey Archer - I've read too much Jeffrey Archer for now, so later maybe
2. Everyone Has A Story by Savi Sharma - Nope, definitely don't want to read
3. The Sialkot Saga by Ashwin Sanghi - Nope again, definitely don't want to read
4. This Was A Man by Jeffrey Archer - Same as above, maybe will read Jeffrey Archer again in some time
The top genres were:
1. Literature & Fiction - my favourite category yes
2. Romance - No
3. Health, Mind & Body - No, don't want to read really
4. Children & Young Adult - Always an interesting reading category
5. Business & Economics - Some books are damn good!
Best read cities of India were:
1. Mumbai - yippee, am here
2. Delhi - yes, I am from here
Obviously Kolkata will not feature here, coz people there are more into real books than Kindle ;) sorrrrryyyyy!!!!!
