Top 10 Book Publishers in Dhaka

Book Publishing

Today we have a very interesting blog for you because we are going international for today’s list as we continue this very popular series of top 10 book publishers.

This is because we are going to talk about the top 10 book publishers in Dhaka which is the capital city of Bangladesh.

We have decided to choose this fantastic city for this edition of the blog series simply because we cannot ignore Dhaka if you talk about book publishing and literature.

This city has one of the highest numbers of readers and critical thinkers as well as book lovers from small children to people who might themselves be grandparents.

That is why it is only fair to bring this popular blog series to such a city and such a literature-loving and culturally rich country.

There is also another important reason why we are doing this blog about another city that is not even in India as an Indian publisher.

It is because of the love and support we get from our readers in Bangladesh as Orange Publishers. We are really honoured by the level of readership numbers we get from this fantastic city.
