The publisher broke down those figures for the individual books in Suzanne Collins‘ series as well: 23 million copies of The Hunger Games; 14 million copies of Catching Fire and 13 million copies of Mockingjay. These big sales drove significant increases in revenue last year.

Here’s more from the publisher’s earnings report: “In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, revenue rose 24% to $678.5 million, from $545.3 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2011 … Strong sales in Children’s Books and International, especially of The Hunger Games trilogy, again drove substantially higher results.¬† Consolidated earnings per diluted share were $1.76 in the fourth quarter, compared to $0.78 a year ago. In fiscal 2012, revenue was $2,148.8 million, up 14% from $1,887.9 million a year ago.”
