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.

To nobody’s surprise, Prince Harry’s record-breaking memoir tops our bestseller list this week. Worldwide, it sold more than 3 million copies in its first week, a few dozen of which came from the Raven.

Elsewhere on the list, we’re excited to see Ross Gay as part of the 5-way tie for fifth place; he’s speaking at Liberty Hall on Feb. 16. Speaking as someone who has seen Ross Gay speak a few times, you don’t want to miss what promises to be a life-affirming, hilarious, and engaging evening. We’ll be there in the back with a book table!
