Note from the Times: This bestseller list comes to us straight from The Raven Book Store in Lawrence. See other editions of the list here.

Fun fact: the top three bestsellers this week are also the top three bestsellers of 2021 so far, halfway in!

Elsewhere on the list, we’re excited to see a debut from the paperback version of Tokyo Ueno Station by Yu Miri. Miri and English translator Morgan Giles won the 2020 National Book Award for translated fiction, and it was Giles’s first translation! It really is a wonderful, beguiling little book.
