Bob Hartman dominates September’s bestsellers with three of his titles appearing in the top ten, including his latest publication ‘Bible Stories through the Year’.

Our Book of the Month, ‘Woodbine Willie’, was this month’s bestseller. A biography of Reverend Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy, also known as Woodbine Willie, who volunteered as a chaplain on the Western Front during the First World War has proved to be a very popular read this month.
