Friday night The Hunger Games movie hit DVD. The movie turned out to be very popular and is the first film to come from the book trilogy. Amazon.com has announced that The Hunger Games trilogy is now the best-selling book trilogy of all time on it service.
Amazon says that three book trilogy is the best-selling franchise when you consider print and digital sales. The previous leader was the Harry Potter series. It’s interesting that there are seven books in the Harry Potter series and only three in the Hunger Games.
“Since debuting in 2008, Katniss Everdeen and the Hunger Games have taken the world by storm, much as Harry Potter did a decade before,” said Sara Nelson, Editorial Director of Books and Kindle, Amazon.com. “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. Customers love these books and all three titles are consistently on our Top 10 lists in both print and Kindle formats, and ‘The Hunger Games’ is also the most-borrowed book in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.”
