Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming’ On Track To Be Most Successful Memoir As It Sells 10M Copies

Since its release in November, Michelle Obama’s memoir Becoming is about to make history.

According to Penguin Random House’s Thomas Rabe, the former First Lady’s book is on track to be the most successful memoir ever as it sells over 10 million copies.

“We believe [it] could well become the most successful memoir ever,” he said on Tuesday according to The Wall Street Journal.

He added, “I’m not aware, in my personal experience with Penguin Random House, that we ever sold 10 million units of a memoir.”

Not only is the hard copy of the novel doing extremely well, but the audiobook, narrated by Obama herself, has become the fastest-ever seller from the publishing company. It also received more pre-orders than any other adult book since 2015.

Obama, 55, toured the U.S. while promoting Becoming, which details her journey from childhood to the White House, with celebrity moderators like Oprah and Reese Witherspoon surprising guests.
