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.

In the end, there was never any doubt about which book would top our bestsellers of the year list.

Dennis Domer and his crew of talented local “Embattled Lawrence 2” historians have claimed the top spot with ease, selling nearly four times as many books as any other book on the list.

Elsewhere on the list, both David Grann and Rebecca Yarros pull off the impressive feat of landing two books in our top 10 yearly bestsellers.

Aside from that, we’re so grateful for all of your support during another wonderful Raven year. Thank you for making us a part of your reading life in 2023!
