The Hunger Games has become Amazon’s top-selling book series, taking the top spot away from J.K. Rowling’s beloved Harry Potter series.
"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," Amazon Editorial Director Sara Nelson said in a statement, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Furthermore, The Hunger Games trilogy, written by Suzanne Collins, is the most-borrowed book for Kindle users.
CNN reports that Katniss Everdeen is the main character of Collins’ books The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
Everdeen is played by Oscar-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence in the film adaptation of the books.
"Since debuting in 2008, Katniss Everdeen and the Hunger Games have taken the world by storm, much as Harry Potter did a decade before," Nelson also said in the statement.
