Most Highlighted Book Passages Come From The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games seemingly reigns over everything these days. Besides being the number one movie in the box office for four straight weeks, it also is sitting comfortably on bestseller lists everywhere. Along side those triumphs it can now add most highlighted passage, e-book style to its list of achievements.

Currently, according to the Kindle, a line from the second book of the trilogy is the most highlighted passage of all time.

“Because sometimes things happen to people and they’re not equipped to deal with them.”

The quote, which comes from Catching Fire, has been Highlighted by 17784 Kindle users as of today.

This line is nearly two times more popular than the second most highlighted passage, which is also from The Hunger Games trilogy. Surprisingly or not, most of the quotes on this list are from the mega-popular trilogy. In fact, 20 our of 25 passages on the list are from the series.

The list, courtesy of Amazon contain quotes such as:

“It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.” Mockingjay
– The number 4 most highlighted passage and has been Highlighted by 8833 Kindle users.
We also have number 10 with:
“I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun.” The Hunger Games
– Highlighted by 7519 Kindle users
While the list includes some heavy moments from the novels, there are also some oddballs thrown in, that are surprisingly on the list.
“Maybe I’d think that, too, Caesar,” says Peeta bitterly, “if it weren’t for the baby.” Catching Fire
– Number 21 on the list and highlighted by 4928 Kindle users
I am not surprised these dominate another list. This trilogy has taken the world by storm and it isn’t finished yet with three more movies on the way.
