First week sales of Prince Harry’s book Spare were far below a record set by Barack Obama.
Spare sold just 629,300 copies in the US. Obama’s memoir, A Promised Land, sold 200,000 more when it was published in 2020, according to NPD Book Scan.
Nevertheless, Spare remains at the top of all best seller lists this week.
Publisher PenguinRandomHouseetc has to be disappointed. They expected 1 million in sales for the first week after a barrage of publicity.
