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 (at least nobody who’s worked at the Raven the past few weeks), this week’s No. 1 book by a landslide is “Embattled Lawrence 2,” the second volume in the monumental local history series. Fear not: we have lots and lots of copies left!

Elsewhere on the list, we can see the influence of our fantastic queer mixer and adult book fair in books like “Pageboy” and “This is How You Lose the Time War” showing strong sales.
