Two of Amanda Gorman's books have reached the top of Amazon's book charts after she delivered a beloved performance during the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris

"I AM ON THE FLOOR MY BOOKS ARE #1 & #2 ON AMAZON AFTER 1 DAY! Thank you so much to everyone for supporting me and my words. As Yeats put it: 'For words alone are certain good: Sing, then,'" she wrote on Twitter. 

Her two books, The Hill We Climb: Poems and Change Sings: A Children's Anthem, were the top of Amazon's general bestseller book charts, they also topped at least one of Amazon's children's books charts.  

Both books will be released on September 21 but that did not stop new fans of Gorman from pre-ordering them in droves.

America was in awe when the 22-year-old National Youth Poet Laureate delivered a stirring recitation of her poem, "The Hill We Climb," on Inauguration Day.

Some of the country's greatest wordsmiths, like Maya Angelou and Robert Frost, have delivered the inauguration poem, but Gorman is the youngest person to ever deliver a poem at a U.S. inauguration in the country's history. 

Decked out in a vibrant yellow coat, Gorman spoke passionately about the highs and lows America has underwent.

"Somehow we've weathered and witnessed, a nation that isn’t broken but simply unfinished. We the successors of a country and a time, Where a skinny Black girl, descended from slaves and raised by a single mother, can dream of becoming president, only to find herself reciting for one," she said.

"And yes we are far from polished, far from pristine, but that doesn’t mean we are, striving to form a union that is perfect. We are striving to forge a union with purpose," she continued. "To compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and conditions of man."  

The poem drew widespread praise, particularly from Oprah Winfrey, who had a close relationship with Angelou before her passing and thought it was important for her to continue the tradition with Gorman.

CBS News host Gayle King revealed that Winfrey gave Gorman a set of earrings and a special ring to wear during her performance, as Blavity previously reported.

The ring was of a caged bird, a reference to the famous work of Angelou, who gave the poem recitation during former President Bill Clinton's inauguration. According to King, Winfrey bought Angelou's coat for that event and tried to do the same for Gorman. But she had already bought her striking yellow coat so Oprah had to gift her something else. 

Gorman spoke about the help Winfrey provided on Twitter.

"Thank you! I would be nowhere without the women whose footsteps I dance in," she wrote.

"While reciting my poem, I wore a ring with a caged bird—a gift from Oprah for the occasion, to symbolize Maya Angelou, a previous inaugural poet. Here’s to the women who have climbed my hills before," she added.

Gorman has been appearing widely in interviews since delivering her poem, noting that like Biden, she had a speech impediment as a child and was able to find her way past it through poetry. 

"Having an arena in which I could express my thoughts freely was just so liberating that I fell head over heels, you know, when I was barely a toddler," she told NPR. 

"Maya Angelou was mute growing up as a child and she grew up to deliver the inaugural poem for President Bill Clinton. So I think there is a real history of orators who have had to struggle with a type of imposed voicelessness, you know, having that stage in the inauguration," she added.
