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.

Lots of great debuts on the list this week, including some new entries from local folks Stephen T. Johnson and the Raven’s own Danny Caine. But nobody can unseat the magnificent “Embattled Lawrence 2,” which continues to hold strong at the top of the list.
