Her family owns the rights to her publications. All Amazon has to do is talk to them. When they figure out that people who already own hard-cover or paper back versions will buy the book yet again if it's offered in digital form, I think they'll agree.
I totally agree with Dr. Schachter. It also seems to be imposssible to find Pearl Buck's books at amazon.com!-----everytime I have tried to go to the web-site it freezes and I cannot purchase. Why? Is Pearl still on a "blacklist'? Just finished reading Spurling's book "Pearl Buck in China"-----an excellent, even-handed examination of Ms. Buck's life and work. My interest is aroused and would now like to read some of her novels. I remember reading "The Good Earth" in my youth but now that I am in my 70's and will visit Shanghai, Nanjing, Xian, and Bejing in Sept. I would like more access to Pearl Buck's work----especially on my Kindle! Mary Lou Monaco
I hope with all my heart that Pearl Buck's books soon can be read on Kindle. She is my favorite author since I was young and that indeed was a long time ago. I would like to reread all her books once again and only on Kindle edition this would be possible.
Yes, I have all of Pearl Buck's books but they are getting old and I want to have them forever, so that is why I even considered getting a Kindle. If anyone knows who to contact let me know and I will start some type of petition that I would hope would influence them. I hate that all the books I want go straight to Audible.com. I got a Kindle to read not to listen to books! Thanks if anyone has ideas or websites.
I sincerely hope Pearl S. Buck's books will be available on Kindle. It is the only way to keep her books alive. I have almost all her books in hardcover but reading on Kindle is much more pleasant. As soon as they I can buy them on my Kindle, I will not hesitate to do so.
I really wish all her books are made available on kindle. Even though i have most of her books in hardcover i would still love to have them and read all of them on kindle. Amazon- please get them ready for kindle
Just found out and pre ordered 10 of Pearl Buck books that will be coming out Aug. 28th. If you go to the Kindle area and type in her name and then click on the left "coming soon", you will see them. Yea!
