The bookseller announced that the memoir has had the best first week of sales in 2018, The Washington Post reported Monday.

“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,” the company’s senior director of merchandising, Liz Harwell, told the Post.


“This is definitely the must-have book of the holiday season,” Harwell added.

The Post noted that the book's sales might not be reflected across all retailers.
