The Raven Book Store’s bestsellers for Jan. 18, 2022 (Sponsored post)

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.

Recently, we moved the Staff Picks section from the front window to a table right by the register. It appears the move paid off; for the first time since we began tracking bestsellers, four of the top 10 are current staff picks (Nos. 1, 3, 8, and 10).

There are few joys more potent for the bookseller than seeing someone buy their staff pick. Thanks for supporting us and our favorite books!
