If you haven’t read Michelle Obama’s book yet, you may be behind the curve.

This week, Obama's memoir “Becoming” became the longest-running book in the number one spot on Amazon since “Fifty Shades of Grey” was released six years ago, CNN Business reports.

So far, Obama’s book has been the best-seller for nine weeks in a row.

CNN Business says another book took the top spot on day 47, but was again bumped down by “Becoming”.

Amazon’s other top-selling books since they started tracking in 1995 were:

  • "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" in 2000
  • "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" in 2003
  • "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" in 2005
  • "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 2007
  • "Da Vinci Code" in 2003
  • "A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose” in 2008
  • "Fifty Shades of Grey" in 2012.

Obama's book tour will be stopping in Phoenix in February.
