'Hunger Games' passes 'Harry Potter' as bestselling Amazon series(Read article summary)
Since debuting in 2008, Amazon says, Katniss Everdeen and the Hunger Games 'have taken the world by storm.'
The reigning wizard of book sales has just been overthrown – again – by Suzanne Collins’s "Hunger Games" trilogy, which surpassed the "Harry Potter" books to become the best-selling series on Amazon.com, the company announced.
“Since debuting in 2008, Katniss Everdeen and the Hunger Games have taken the world by storm, much as Harry Potter did a decade before,” Sara Nelson, the editorial director of books and Kindle at Amazon, said in a statement. “Interestingly, this series is only three books versus Harry Potter’s seven, and to achieve this result in just four years is a great testament to both the popularity of the work and, we think, the growth in reading digitally during that time.”
