Michelle Obama breaks ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ record

Former first lady Michelle Obama now has one of the top-selling books of the decade with her memoir ‘Becoming’.

It’s been two months since Michelle Obama released her memoir, and it’s still on top of Amazon’s best-selling books chart. Becoming was the No. 1 “most sold on Amazon across all formats for 47 consecutive days,” according to Amazon Charts. The book had the longest period at No. 1 since Fifty Shades of Grey‘s streak about seven years ago, enjoying many weeks in the top spot.

According to CNN Business, not since the sexy Twilight-inspired book has a book had such staying power in the #1 “most sold on Amazon across all formats” list. 

Only seven other titles have enjoyed longer streaks at No. 1. since the company began compiling its book sales this way in 1995, and four of them were from the super-popular Harry Potter series.

January 17 also marked a very special day for Obama, it was her 55th birthday! In celebration, Barack Obama took to social media to send a sweet message to his wife.

“I knew it way back then and I’m absolutely convinced of it today — you’re one of a kind, @MichelleObama,” he wrote along with a throwback photo of the couple. “Happy Birthday!”
