Prince Harry autobiography Spare is fastest-selling non-fiction book ever

The Duke of Sussex’s autobiography is the fastest-selling non-fiction book ever, recording figures of 400,000 copies so far across hardback, ebook and audio formats on its first day of publication, its publishers have said.

Prince Harry’s memoir Spare accidentally went on sale in Spain five days prior to the official release, while pages of the memoir were leaked to various media outlets.

The ghost-written autobiography was released officially today (10 January), and has reportedly flown off bookstore shelves.

Larry Finlay, managing director of Transworld Penguin Random House, said; “We always knew this book would fly but it is exceeding even our most bullish expectations.

“As far as we know, the only books to have sold more in their first day are those starring the other Harry (Potter).”
