Published in Japan this past April to a rapturous reception, the novel sold 1 million copies in its first week print run.

These most recent low-key updates to Random House's website indicate that "Colourless Tsukuru" will be made available in hardback, e-book and audiobook formats.

Amazon soon mirrored the date with a pre-order page for the hardcover and CD, while links listed by Knopf parent company Random House implied that a dozen other major booksellers, from Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million to iBooks, Kobo and Google Play, were expected to follow in due course. - AFP/Relaxnews, December 12, 2013.
