Michelle Obama Draws Thousands as Book Tour Kicks Off


KRNB – Before her book tour officially began, the new book penned by former first lady Michelle Obama had already become a ‘best seller’ in the first day of release on November 13th.

And the The Root reports, “just four days after its Nov. 13 release, Penguin Random House announced Mrs. Obama’s memoir, Becoming, sold more than 725,000 units in all formats and editions in the United States and Canada on the first day of its publication, including preorders.” Her success comprises the largest single-day sales total for any 2018 book release by the world’s largest trade publisher.  The book is trending toward being the biggest book of 2018.
