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.

Well, yesterday was our last day at our original 6 E. 7th St. location (we’ll be closed for a few days as we get our new location ready at 809 Mass!).

The bestseller list nicely reflects everything people have come to seek from the Raven: exciting new mysteries, bestsellers, backlist classics, social justice, science, poetry, and local titles like the new-classic Ladybird Collected, once again taking the top spot.

Thanks for your support for the last 34 years, and we can’t wait to show you our new spot!
