The trend was kickstarted by two friends at Cubbon Park in Bengaluru, which turned into a worldwide silent reading movement.
In less than six months, there were more than 30 chapters across various cities in India and around 15 internationally.
Inspired by the book reading culture in Bangalore, Shireen, a business consultant, and Meghana Gorli, a student, started Vizag Reads.
Vizag Reads is going to be a weekly occurrence from 9am to 11am every Sunday at VMRDA Central Park.
Visakhapatnam has a handful of book clubs wherein participants read and discuss pre-decided titles and authors. But at Vizag Reads, one can bring any reading material of their choice, even a newspaper or research paper.
