People are still hungry for Suzanne Collins' books seven months later, by gar.
Here's your weekly St. Louis bestseller list for the week ending March 11, as compiled by the St. Louis Independent Booksellers Alliance
and based on sales at Left Bank Books
, Main Street Books
, Pudd'nhead Books
, Subterranean Books
and Sue's News
Back in August
, our pages were aflutter because all three books in Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games
series had shown up simultaneously on the Young Adult list. With the movie impending, all three books are bunched up in the 2-through-4 holes on this week's list. Can one of 'em fight their way to the top spot? Will we see the first ever three-way tie for first (that's known as a Reverse Minutemen
, for all you nautical fans out there) on next week's list? Only time, and the opening weekend box office gross, can tell.
Incidentally, one title from that fateful August 7 list remains on the Adult Bestsellers' list seven months later. I have no idea what Light Bringer is about, but apparently a whole lot of you do.
