Child and Collins join Kindle Million Club

Lee Child and Suzanne Collins are the latest authors to sell more than a million Kindle books.

The pair join Stieg Larsson, James Patterson, Nora Roberts and Charlaine Harris.

Child, who has written 16 Jack Reacher thrillers including 61 Hours and is published by Bantam in the UK, noted he started writing at the same time Amazon went live in 1995. He said: "I'm really delighted to have hit this current milestone, and I look forward to many more together."

Collins, whose work includes The Underland Chronicles (Scholastic), is the first children’s author to reach the milestone. She said: "What a lovely and unexpected honour to be in such wonderful company and see my books reaching readers in this exciting new format.”
