According to USA Today, Suzanne Collins’ Catching Fire is the top-selling book in the country.

The first book in the series, Hunger Games, was on the list for only 3 week, rising to a high point of #51 (it’s still on the NYT Childrens Hardcover list after 51 weeks, currently at #2, its highest position).

USA Today notes in its “Book Buzz” column that Collins will not be touring for the book because she is too busy working on the final book in the trilogy, due next fall.
