“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,” said Liz Harwell, Senior Director of Merchandising, Trade Books at Barnes & Noble. “This is definitely the must-have book of the holiday season.”
