February’s Best Seller is Mark Manson’s ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck’, moving 883 copies. Scott Pape’s ever-present ‘The Barefoot Investor’ remains in the top 3, selling 726 copies this month. While new release and New York Times Best Seller ‘The Woman in the Window’ by A. J. Finn follows with 501 copies sold.
Much like his presidential campaign, ‘Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House’ has had a dramatic rise to the top of the poll. Michael Wolff’s exposé has sold 1005 copies across the Circle Community and over 1.7 million copies worldwide since its release on the 5th of January. Manson’s ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck’ and Pape’s ‘The Barefoot Investor’, continue to hold second and third positions selling 946 and 832 copies.

In third was David Walliams’ latest children’s book, ‘Bad Dad’, which sold 5251 copies.

The third biggest seller this month has been Mark Manson’s ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck’, at 1474 copies.

The much requested Backorder Report that can be sent to suppliers was also delivered. We have also been pushing ahead with the Rails4 upgrade and hope to have a beta out in January.
