Obama's A Promised Land scores a third week at the top

Barack Obama's A Promised Land (Viking) has held the UK Official Top 50 number one for a third week running.

Though Nielsen BookScan was once again unable to provide volume or value data due to England's bookshops being under lockdown for most of the week, publisher Penguin Random House confirmed the former US President's memoir had sold over 66,000 copies in hardback through retailers last week, with its digital editions selling a further 24,251 units. In total, since publication on 17th November, the title has sold over 340,000 copies across all editions over the UK and Ireland.
