Top-selling print and e-books in the U.S. 2010-2019

Between 2010 and 2019, the best-selling book in the United States was 'Fifty Shades of Grey' by E. L. James, with 15.2 million print and digital copies sold. 'Fifty Shades Darker' and 'Fifty Shades Freed' ranked second and third respectively, meaning that the series ended the decade with almost 35 million print and e-book sales in total. All three books have been adapted into films, and whilst the series received a number of nominations and wins for Golden Raspberry Awards, it ranks among the highest-grossing R-rated film franchises of all time. Every book to rank in the top ten best-selling books of the decade has made it to the silver screen, and the first movie instalment within 'The Hunger Games' series generated almost 700 million U.S. dollars in box offices worldwide.
