The megillot are read on different occasions in the year:

  • Shir HaShirim on Pesach
  • Rut on Shavuot
  • Eicha on Tisha b'Av
  • Kohelet on Sukkot
  • Esther on Purim

Do any mefarshim find a connection between the 5 megillot and the 5 books of the Torah?

    5 megillot is not a halachic category. They are just 5 books some read on various occasions. A better parallel is 5 books of tehillim.
