We feel like a broken record — and speaking of breaking records, Harry, Duke of Sussex, has done so again.

The Guardian reports that Harry's memoir, Spare, has become the UK's fastest-selling nonfiction book since records began.

And additionally, according to the paper, Guinness World Records has confirmed that Spare was the fastest-selling nonfiction book ever on its first day of publication.

That's an improvement on previous first-day news; last week, it was simply deemed the biggest first-day nonfiction book for its publisher.

Sick of Harry? We have bad news.

Tom Tivnan, managing editor of The Bookseller, told the Mirror UK that he believes Harry's deal was actually for four books, meaning we have three more in the forecast.

Literary Hub, which shared that tidbit, isn't surprised — the original draft of Spare was twice the length of what was published, apparently.
