By Carol Memmott, Bob Minzesheimer and Dierdre Donahue at www.USATODAY.com: Tuesday’s release of Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol, which features symbologist Robert Langdon of The Da Vinci Code, is being surrounded by secrecy. Suzanne Collins has landed at No. 1 with Catching Fire. And the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association has made an unexpected move up to No. 25.
Collins on ‘Fire’: Suzanne Collins is too busy writing the final book in The Hunger Games, her trilogy for teens, to do a book tour or even many interviews. But that hasn’t prevented Catching Fire, the second in the series, from landing at No. 1 on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling Books list. The series, set in a futurist dictatorship, features teens forced to fight to the death on TV. It has been praised by two other writers who have reached No. 1 on the list: Stephenie Meyer and Stephen King. Collins, 47, says, “I’m wonderfully shocked and deeply grateful that the book has connected with so many readers.”
