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.

I love the diversity on this week’s bestseller list. You have new local classics (#1, #4, #5) and nationwide bestsellers (#2, #3) but you also have a comic for kids (#6), a beautiful new divination deck from a local poet and artist (#7) and a 30-year-old academic press history of a famous local event (#9).

Truly, you wouldn’t be able to replicate this bestseller list at any other bookstore. Thank you for your support and your specific tastes!
