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.
How do literary Lawrencians handle the doldrums of February? By reading spooky books, apparently. The top three books in this week’s bestseller list are all horror-influenced fiction, with Raven favorite Stephen Graham Jones’s new spine-tingler leading the way.
And even though Ross Gay’s big Liberty Hall event was postponed to a date TBD, folks still wanted to read him, with both of his recent nonfiction titles landing on the list.
1. Stephen Graham Jones, Don’t Fear the Reaper
2. Mariana Enriquez, Our Share of Night
3. Grady Hendrix, How to Sell a Haunted House
4. Ed O’Malley and Julia Fabris McBride, When Everyone Leads: How the Toughest Challenges Get Seen and Solved
