Michelle Obama can now add best-selling author to her resume. 
 
The former First Lady's memoir Becoming sold more than 1.4 million print and digital copies in the United States and Canada since it hit the shelves on November 13.

On the international front, Obama's memoir is sitting in the number one spot for nonfiction in the United Kingdom, France, Holland, Spain, Denmark, Finland, and Germany — where 200,000 copies have been sold which has prompted another printing of 100,000 copies.
