The Hunger Games Tops Harry Potter In Overall Sales On Amazon

Sorry J.K. Rowling! You’ve been beaten fair and square by Suzanne Collins on

The Hunger Games trilogy (in both physical and digital copies) has surpassed all seven Harry Potter books in overall sales on the retail website.

After noting that Collins’ accomplished what Rowling did with just three books, Amazon├óΓé¼Γäós Editorial Director of Books and Kindle commented on the feat by saying:

“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.”


With two more blockbuster movies still to come, we don’t see the sales dying down any time soon!
