I have had a batch of Edworts apfelwein (or as close as i could make) fermenting for about a month now. Presently the top half is crystal clear, but the bottom half is still clear enough to read through however not as clear as the top. Im wondering if this will it clear a little more in the wine bottles or should I leave it for another little while.

PS I placed a book behind to see if I could read through it.... I could

I say give it one or two more weeks. It will probably get close to finished clearing. If you let it clear in the bottles, then you will have more sediment in the bottle, unappealing to most. Just be patient and give it a bit more time, it is really close.

Leave for a couple more weeks like Tusch suggested.
