Nowadays, one can easily find in U.S. e-commerce giant Amazon's "China Bookstore" translated versions of almost all popular Chinese books such as Wolf Totem, The Tibet Code, The Flowers of War, Zhu Rongji Meets the Press, The Deng Xiaoping Era, and A History of Chinese and Foreign Civilizations.

The "China Bookstore" provides 110,000 types of books about Chinese celebrities, society, culture, and other aspects. This online bookstore had only 10,000 types of books when it was first launched in September last year.

Hawthorn Tree Forever has been translated into 13 languages, and its copyright has been exported to countries and regions include Norway, Sweden, South Korea, and the United Kingdom. Its entry into Norway and Sweden, the two Northern European countries that are particularly picky about cultural products, marks a breakthrough in the export of Chinese literary books' copyrights.
