Michelle Obama is a lot of things: former first lady, paid public speaker, wife, mother and now, best-selling author.
According to bookseller Barnes & Noble, Obama’s memoir Becoming is officially the fastest-selling book of 2018. The book, which chronicles Michelle’s childhood in Chicago to her time in the White House, has sold more copies in its first week than any other work released in 2018.
Becoming also marked the most first-week sales for an adult book in more than three years.
“We knew Becoming was going to be one of the biggest books of the year, but it has now officially had the best first week of sales of any book in 2018, and is among the fastest sellers in Barnes & Noble history,” Liz Harwell, senior director of merchandising and trade books at Barnes & Noble said in a statement. “This is definitely the must-have book of the holiday season.”
The news comes after conservative commentator Tami, uh, Tomi Lauren, oops, Lahren had some harsh criticism for Michelle, including her assertion that she should “sit down.”
Michelle Obama said we “had” a great president. By what measure? Not in economic growth. Not in border enforcement. Not in strength on the world stage. Sit down, Michelle.— Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren) September 24, 2018
Michelle Obama wrote she was unable to put on a happy face and smile during President Donald Trump's inauguration. That’s okay, we all smiled watching you and your husband vacate the White House. Bye!— Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren) November 12, 2018
Welp, those tweets aged as well as Donald Trump’s hairline. Congrats are in order for Mrs. Obama! Stay winning!
