Why are the five megilos read in synagogue on holidays, but not the books of Mishlei, Iyov, Daniel, Ezra/Nechemia, Divrei Hayamim, or Psalms?

    Why should we read then publicly? And why don't you wonder why we don't read Tzefania publicly? Or Chaggai?

    @NaftaliTzvi if that is a sine qua non of your question, you should include it to explain what you are looking for.

    You are assuming again that publicly requires a minyan though that is not in your question. A person davening alone at night on Tisha B'av still reads eichah so a minyan isn't required. ou.org/torah/halacha/hashoneh-halachos/thurs_02_06_14 What exactly is your question?

    All types but certainly chasidim do so, preferably with a minyan present but everyone would read to themselves, no trop and no niggun required, not responsively, from a book, no blesseing, someone says kaddish after each book is finished if a minyan is present
