Book vending machine sells out in Dublin

A book vending box in Dublin has been selling out of copies of The Hunger Games trilogy.

The box has sold out of books in a matter of days and booksellers across the capital are struggling to fill the space.

In Dublin, the Dublin Book Fair, which runs until Monday, has sold nearly 50,000 copies of the trilogy.

Bookshops in other parts of the country have been overwhelmed with books.

The book sale, which was held in the city centre in front of a crowd of more than 100 people, was the second-largest in Dublin.

The first was in the Irish capital last week.
