Top Five E-Book Highlights

According to Amazon theses are the five most highlighted e-book passages. Readers of Suzanne Collins seem to be the wildest highlighters. If this list is believable it doesn't teach us anything. I expected readers to highlight quotable jewels of human expression. Instead...

5. "I just want to spend every possible minute of the rest of my life with you," Peeta replies.
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, highlighted by 8,500 Kindle users.

4. It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, highlighted by 8,833 Kindle users.

3. The rules of the Hunger Games are simple. In punishment for the uprising, each of the twelve districts must provide one girl and one boy, called tributes, to participate. The twenty-four tributes will be imprisoned in a vast outdoor arena that could hold anything from a burning desert to a frozen wasteland. Over a period of several weeks, the competitors must fight to the death. The last tribute standing wins.

2. It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

1. Because sometimes things happen to people and they're not equipped to deal with them.
