We had spotted some Hunger Games movie stats in the past – we always knew the movie was huge. We spotted a shocking stat today:

“In what has to be shocking news, Amazon.com reported on August 17 that the “Hunger Games” trilogy has outsold all seven “Harry Potter” books, making “The Hunger Games” the best-selling book series of all time on Amazon.com

“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.””
