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.
This week’s bestseller list has plenty of new faces, like Casey McQuiston’s eagerly awaited followup to Red White & Royal Blue and Clint Smith’s amazing new history of slavery. By far the fastest seller of the week is the new children’s book from U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids.
This week, Robin Wall Kimmerer’s “Braiding Sweetgrass” continues its impressive run by climbing to the No. 1 spot.
The biggest Raven news this week isn’t what’s on the bestseller list, but rather that we’re reopening the Raven’s original 6 E. Seventh St. location for browsing on June 5!
Hi! Welcome to what will become a regular column highlighting the bestselling books of the week at the Raven Book Store! (Sponsored post)
