Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming’ on track to be 2018’s top seller
Michelle Obama might just have sewn up the nomination for
the best-selling book of the year
That’s despite the fact that “
,” the ex-first lady’s memoir, wasn’t released until Nov. 13.
On day one, “Becoming” sold 725,000 copies across all platforms, which includes the hardcover, digital and audio editions, according to the Crown imprint of Penguin Random House.
Crown said it had debuted with a first printing of 1.8 million copies and that it has already gone back for 800,000 more, pushing copies in print to 2.6 million.
The book will need to almost clear that figure to overtake “
Fire & Fury
,” the President Trump attack title by Michael Wolff, which has sold more than 2.5 million copies since its debut 11 months ago.
That publication was slow to get off the mark as the Henry Holt imprint of Macmillan failed to anticipate demand for politically themed titles.
A third book, “
Fear: Trump in the White House
,” by Bob Woodward, sold 900,000 copies during its first week, the publisher Simon & Schuster said.
Barnes & Noble said the politics sales category is up 59 percent compared with the year-earlier period.
