The Good Earth - Pearl S. Buck

I've been waiting on this one to become available as an ebook and just got a notice from Amazon $6.64

Quote:
Pearl S. Buck’s timeless masterpiece, the Pulitzer Prize–winning story of a farmer’s journey through China in the 1920s

The Good Earth is Buck’s classic story of Wang Lung, a Chinese peasant farmer, and his wife, O-lan, a former slave. With luck and hard work, the couple’s fortunes improve over the years: They are blessed with sons, and save steadily until one day they can afford to buy property in the House of Wang—the very house in which O-lan used to work. But success brings with it a new set of problems. Wang soon finds himself the target of jealousy, and as good harvests come and go, so does the social order. Will Wang’s family cherish the estate after he’s gone? And can his material success, the bedrock of his life, guarantee anything about his soul?

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the William Dean Howells Award, The Good Earth was an Oprah’s Book Club choice in 2004. A readers’ favorite for generations, this powerful and beautifully written fable resonates with universal themes of hope and family unity.

Just read that recently. Overdrive—Free Library of Philadelphia—has it as an epub book.

Ah Cool! I've searched for it in the past but it only was recently released as best I can tell.

Thanks for the Library Link!

P.S. Just checked again in my local library, they only have the audio book.

This was the first work of fiction to be the bestselling American novel for two consecutive years,1931 and 1932. It was a Book of the Month Club selection and more than once the publisher had to borrow some of the book club's inventory to meet bookstore demand.

Yeah, I was excited when I saw this become available too. I actually owned this in hardback as a child, but I don't seem to have it anymore and I never actually read it.

So when I saw it available as ebook I jumped for joy.

I remember reading it in high school oh so many years ago! I wasn't too fond of it then. I'd have to be REALLY motivated to try it again.
