The company told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the sales, made in the week since the book's Nov. 13 release, and retailer demand prompted Crown Publishing to print 3 million hardcover copies of the memoir in North America. It's the No. 1 adult nonfiction book in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Holland, Spain, Denmark and Finland, according to the AP.
More than 725,000 copies of “Becoming” were sold on the day of its release, according to publisher Penguin Random House. Earlier this week, bookseller Barnes & Noble said the memoir had the biggest first-week sales of any book this year, surpassing Bob Woodward’s “Fear: Trump in the White House.”
