Barack Obama’s ‘A Promised Land’ Sets Record, Sells Over 1.7 Million Copies In First Week

Published: Sunday 29th Nov 2020 by Oscar

Barack Obama continues to make history outside of office!

For, his new memoir, ‘A Promised Land‘, has sold a staggering 1.7 million copies in the United States and Canada during its first week on shelves.

Read more on the impressive feat below…

Released on November 17, the former President’s book opened to huge sales upwards of 880,000 in the United States and Canada on its first day of release. These figures make it the largest first-day sales total for any book published by Penguin Random House.

The only other White House resident to even come close to matching the sales of ‘Land’ is none other than his wife, Michelle Obama, with her memoir ‘Becoming’ which sold an outstanding 725,000 copies in North America during its first 24 hours of release.

So far, Mrs. Obama’s publication has seen sales succeeding the 10 million mark (and that’s prior to a paperback release).

If news of his astonishing sales isn’t enough, the former President is slated to receive PEN America’s Voice of Influence Award next month.

Congratulations to the 44th President! Four years may have past since he and his family left the White House, but their cultural legacy will continue on for many years to come.

    Astounding. King-ish!!!! 👑

    No other so called president could ever match these kind of numbers

    In fact, I can’t imagine soon to be out of a job No.45 has ever read a book front to back their entire life. 😏😎

      I’m buying Trump’s audiobook as a form of punishment for my future kids.
