One million copies of the book already released

Haruki Murakami's newest piece reaches 1 mil. circulation in 7 days

TOKYO, April 18, Kyodo
Publisher Bungeishunju Ltd. said Thursday the circulation of the newest novel by acclaimed Japanese author Haruki Murakami has reached 1 million since its release on April 12.
The new work, "Shikisai o Motanai Tazaki Tsukuru to, Kare no Junrei no Toshi (Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage)," was reprinted even before its release due to a large number of subscriptions.
The book, however, has been sold out at many bookstores.
A previous Murakami novel, "1Q84 Book 3," topped 1 million sales on 12 days after its release.
