Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming is flying off of the shelves. Like selling 9 copies per second! WOW! Barnes & Nobles says that Becoming is one of their fastest selling books EVER!
Becoming‘s publisher, Penguin Random House has ordered an additional 800,000 copies. The first print run was 1.8 million copies. According to a company report, the book sold 725,000 copies in its first 24 hours!
Penguin Random House knew that the book would sell but not like this! The CEO, Madeline McIntosh called the public response, “extraordinary.”
Let’s be real, who is really shocked? Everyone loves Michelle! So if you plan to give Becoming as a Christmas present, you might want to order it now before it runs out! A book might be the biggest gift this Christmas!
