Copies of “Catching Fire” and “Mockingjay,” the second and third installments, respectively, of Suzanne Collins’ popular trilogy, sit on a shelf Thursday at Downtown Books. Novels in the futuristic series were a hot item at the bookstore this Christmas, and they are among the shop’s most popular books, employees said.

Robin Weible knew “The Hunger Games” was popular. She heard about the first book in Suzanne Collins’ best-selling series from students at Craig Middle School and Moffat County High School. Finally, Weible, MCHS library technician, decided to see for herself what all the excitement was about. She was sucked into the novel, which follows Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl living in a post-apocalyptic future, who must compete against other young teens in a government-mandated fight to the death.
