In May 2020 we’re reading Carlo Collodi’s classic children’s story ‘Le avventure di Pinocchio’.

For people who want to read the original, it’s available free online! 36 short chapters should be manageable for many of you, though the language is archaic in places. There are many places you can find the text:
- it.wikisource.it – the export functions are slow and not very good, but if you’re happy reading online, the html pages are nicely done and have the original images (scroll down to see links to each chapter. This is where I began.
- The author’s foundation, www.pinocchio.it, has a free .pdf to download.
- liberliber.it has this free .pdf, not with the original images and not fantastically formatted
- Project Gutenberg is always reliable and offers a choice of formats
For those who like to listen, there’s a RAI audio version (it’s probably abridged, I haven’t checked).
And/or you could BUY our, very short and simplified, ‘easy reader’ ebook, which also has audio. Click here to view it in our online shop and download the free sample chapter.
Whichever version you choose, remember, the fun of a book club is interacting with others and sharing opinions and ideas!
