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.

“Embattled Lawrence” leads the pack again this week, with the dazzling and captivating local history volume easily outselling even the best-selleriest of national bestsellers like “Lessons in Chemistry” and the hard-to-find “Fourth Wing” (more copies are on the way, we promise!).

Aside from that, here’s a quick note: if there’s a book you need in early August, it’s probably a good idea to order it now in case the UPS goes on strike. We’ll keep doing everything we can to get you the books you need, but things might take a bit longer as UPS drivers fight for the contract they deserve.

2.     R F Kuang, Yellowface

3.     Bonnie Garmus, Lessons in Chemistry

4.     Katy Hays, The Cloisters: A Novel
