Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming’ Set to Become the Best-Selling Memoir in History

Books Obama Tour

When our favorite FLOTUS released her memoir “Becoming” in November it quickly became a best-seller, and it’s already sold nearly 10 million copies.

“We believe this could be the most successful memoir in history,” said Thomas Rabe, the chief executive of Bertelsmann, a parent company of Penguin Random House, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Mrs. Obama has sold out arenas on her massive international book tour, where she has been interviewed onstage by Oprah, Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon and more.

“Becoming” held the top slot in hardcover nonfiction on the New York Times’ list for a full 18 weeks, it had the longest streak at No. 1 for any book, according to Amazon.

The autobiography chronicles Mrs. Obama’s experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address.

We love our forever FLOTUS and we celebrate her success! #BlackGirlMagic
