Raven Book Store Bestsellers
Here are Lawrence’s latest bestsellers, brought to us by the Raven Book Store:
”We find ourselves on the cusp of any bookstore’s most exciting time of year: holiday retail! The official kickoff (at least in our case) of the holiday season is Nov. 25, known both as Small Business Saturday and Indies First,” the Raven Book Store writes.
I think a big question for publishing in the coming Fall Big Book season is how interested people will be in reading about the former president. A wave of postmortems is on the way, and one of the first arrives at No. 5 on this week’s list.
This week’s bestseller list is dominated by Raven Favorite Grady Hendrix’s clever new horror novel The Final Girl Support Group. The strong sales come on the heels of a wonderful virtual event. You can still catch the replay.
Last week I was feeling proud and inspired that four of our weekly bestsellers were local titles. Well, this week features SEVEN local titles, including two from Sarah Henning!
Every bookstore is a reflection of its local community, and our local community has some pretty good taste.
Fun fact: the top three bestsellers this week are also the top three bestsellers of 2021 so far, halfway in!
Today is the second day of Amazon’s annual Prime Day celebration. That means it’s a fantastic day to support an independent business, much like the fine folks who bought these books in droves last week!
Here’s the bestseller list for the Raven’s first full week of being open to browsing.
