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.

Amanda Gorman’s long-awaited picture book debuts with a strong No. 1 on this round of the Raven’s bestseller list. Any time a poet tops a bestseller list is a cause for celebration.

Elsewhere on the list, the anticipation for the high-budget movie adaptation continues to drive sales of Dune, but a diner owner from Kansas is still outselling the sci-fi classic.
