"The title was the book giant's biggest success of last year," said Thomas Rabe, chief executive of the German media group Bertelsmann, the parent company of the publisher.
"We believe that these memoirs could well become the most successful memoir ever," he added.
"'Becoming' has been a global sales juggernaut since being launched in 31 languages simultaneously in mid-November. The audiobook, read by the former First Lady, has become the fastest-ever seller put out by Penguin Random House," the publisher said.
