Book that got me fired from my job for ‘making fun of’ hobbits
By JOSEPH PAGLIARNOEN, AP Book sales and book sales are on the rise, thanks to the success of books like the Lord of the Rings and Hunger Games.
But what about those other popular books?
Why do they sell so much more?
Here are 10 of the best-selling books published in 2017:1.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey by J.R.
R TolkienThe Hobbit, a Tolkien fantasy novel that came out in 1997, has been translated into more than 100 languages and sold more than 14 million copies.
It’s one of the most beloved books of all time.
But some people find it a little too serious for their taste, and it’s been criticized for being too violent, or for depicting violence against women.
In response, the Tolkien Estate has launched a campaign called “Make The Hobbit,” where people can sign petitions to make The Hobbit more “funny” and less “violent.”
“I think it’s great that J. R.R.’s books have become such iconic properties,” says Lauren P. Guggenheim, the head of merchandising for Tolkien Enterprises.
“And it shows the power of the franchise, of The Hobbit and all of its iconic characters, to really create a cultural phenomenon.”2.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Suzanne CollinsAnd, perhaps unsurprisingly, there’s a Hunger Games movie.
Collins’ novel tells the story of two young women, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, who discover they are siblings, after Katnss parents take her and her brother away from home.
The book has been adapted into more popular films, including the upcoming James Wan-produced film.3.
The Adventures of Captain Zarkov by James PattersonThe Adventures of Capt. Zarkowv, an epic adventure book written by James C. Patterson and published by Bloomsbury, has sold more copies than any other book in history.
The author, who’s also a writer of popular TV shows like Game of Thrones and Star Trek, told The Associated Press that he was inspired to write the book after reading a book of his own titled “A Christmas Carol.”
“It’s a very simple, beautiful book,” Patterson told the AP.
“I just thought, I can’t wait to get to the next one.”4.
The Unforgiven by Charles StrossThe Unforgotten, an African-American family saga, has a fan base that is estimated at 50 million people.
The story is set in a fictional Louisiana town, but the books main character, Zorba Stryker, is a fictional character from the same story.
According to Strykers family, the novel sold 1.7 million copies in 2016.5.
The Death of Captain America by Joe HillThe Death of Capt., by Joe R. Hill, is the second-most-watched television series on the cable network History.

The series has been praised for its depiction of racial and ethnic diversity.6.
The Black Lives Matter Movement by Ophelia BensonThe Black Lives Matters movement has been gaining popularity in recent years, especially in the United States.
The movement started in 2015 as a protest against police violence against African-Americans.
Its first major protest in Washington, D.C., was in February of this year, when a group of protesters burned a police car and attacked a police van with hammers and bricks.
Since then, the movement has grown and has gained a wide following.
The first book in the Black Livesmatter trilogy, Black Against Blue, sold more books than any previous book in 2016, according to Amazon.7.
The Legend of Korra: Book One by Kaitlin OlsonThe Legend of Kaitlyn Olson, an Avatar, who was first introduced in Book One of The Legend, has gained some notoriety in the comic book world.

She started writing comics in 2014 and released her first book, The Legend Begins, in 2015.8.
The Life and Times of James PattersonIt’s been a while since the last big comic book hit the stands.
