NEWS: The Hunger Games claims Top 4 Spots on USA Today's Best-Selling List

With the movie now out in theaters and the fans continuing to spread the word like wildfire, there is no doubt that The Hunger Games is indeed currently on the top of its game, especially in terms of book sales. USA Today reports that The Hunger Games sits on the #1 spot on their Best-selling Book List right now, Catching Fire on #2, Mockingjay on #3, and The Hunger Games Trilogy on #4. This doesn't really come as a surprise to us.
Not since Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), who did it 13 times, or J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter), who did it four times, has an author swept the top four spots on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling Books list. 
But after last weekend’s movie release of The Hunger Games, which set a box-office record for a non-sequel, Suzanne Collins sweeps the top of the list, as thebox set of her trilogy moves up to No. 4. 
It’s the 11th week this year that her three novels have held the top three spots. And Collins did it the old-fashioned way: Print versions are outselling e-books.
