Gurgaon, Haryana India (PressExposure) April 02, 2011 -- At BooksOrbit.com, the staff is well versed with the books they sell; they have among them a variety of readers who give constant input regarding the collections and best sellers. But to find out better what their customers are looking for, BooksOrbit.com conducted a survey earlier this month, gauging the mind and needs of the average Indian reader.
The survey found that Indian readers are fiction lovers, with mystery and romance genres acing the game; humor and self-help books follow closely. This isn't a surprise, considering fiction is generally the lightest read possible, especially because a lot of people don't spend much time reading, presumably busy with work. The ones who do seem to do it mostly on weekends, but some have everyday bedside reads as well. There are, of course, book addicts, who cannot imagine a day without one, or can never travel even on the daily bus without a ready read in hand.
There are very few people who read more than 10 books per year, however, a lot of them love gifting books to their loved ones. Books are great gifts, especially because one can choose from so many types, suiting exactly the person for whom it is intended. The BooksOrbit.com collection certainly has both the breadth and depth when it comes to variety.
Also emerging from the survey is the fact that there are an increasing number of people willing to buy books online, not only because of safe and secure online experiences, but also people are opening up to the idea of home deliveries for books, saving them much time and effort. Discounted prices and delivery time seem to be key aspects in helping customers decide either for or against online book shopping. Add to this the Readers Zone experience at BooksOrbit.com, which gives viewpoints and reviews about the latest books and guides readers to pick their next book, and the online book shopping experience becomes multiply more enriching!
The latest collection looks promising with titles ranging from New York Times bestsellers such as 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' by Stieg Larsson to the latest by Shiv Khera, 'You Can Sell'. Also in the new release list are weight loss books by Rujuta Diwekar, 'Women and the Weight Loss Tamasha' and 'Don't Lose Your Mind Lose Your Weight', which are currently at the top of the market.
Perhaps one of the best reads this month is 'Chanakya's Chants' by Ashwin Sanghi, a modern-day revival of the brilliant strategist from the Mauryan Empire. The intriguing tale talks about a modern version of Chanakya, and the question waiting to be answered is whether he will be able to bring the same magic to modern day India as the original master did during Chandragupta Maurya's rule.
