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.

Four of these ten books are local (and one is seeing continuous huge sales because it’s the KU Common Book).

This strikes me as very cool: these books are dominating our bestseller list, and they’re nowhere to be found on any other bestseller lists.

This speaks to the uniqueness of Lawrence, and the strength of independent bookstores. Every bookstore is a reflection of its local community, and our local community has some pretty good taste.
