Amazon has released a list of the top 20 cities where the most copies of Suzanne Collins' post-apocalyptic Hunger Games trilogy have been purchased. Number one on the list? Sunnyvale, CA. (Not to be confused with Sunnydale, aka The Hellmouth.) What's going on in Sunnyvale? Well, there's a bunch of aerospace/defense companies: Lockheed Martin, Honeywell, Northrop Grumman… But more important, perhaps, is the fact that the Yahoo! headquarters are in Sunnyvale. Tech folks simply adore a good dystopian novel.

Here's the list:

1. Sunnyvale, CA
2. Salt Lake City, UT
3. Tallahassee, FL
4. Seattle, WA
5. Orlando, FL
6. Pittsburgh, PA
7. St. Louis, MO
8. Provo, UT
9. San Francisco, CA
10. Naperville, IL
11. Washington, DC

I will always assume that Sunnyvale is actually Sunnydale. They just want to keep things on the DL, what with the monster problem and all.
