As mentioned last week, today we have a new, intermediate-level (B1) ‘easy Italian reader’ ebook.
It’s called Zio Ciro e la pizza and is about, well, uncle Ciro, and pizza.
Against her conservative father’s wishes, a nineteen-year-old Italian-American, buys a plane ticket to Napoli, in Italy. The plan is to discover the city her family originated from, and to get to know zio Ciro, the black sheep of the family!
Join Angela as she helps her Neapolitan uncle prepare pizzas for a special lunch, while learning the fascinating history of Napoli’s most famous dish!
Zio Ciro e la pizza is a nice story (unless perhaps you’re a conservative father…) so well worth the special launch offer price of just £5.99 (until Sunday night, subsequently £7.99.)
Check out the free sample chapter (.pdf) to get an idea of the level, length and format of this ebook, and whether it will be suitable for you at your current level in Italian.
If not, select something more appropriate from our Catalog page, instead, where you’ll find ebooks from the lowest level to the highest.
Oh, and don’t forget – while the default ebook format is .pdf (printable and readable on most devices), this story, like many of our ebooks, is also available in .mobi (Kindle-compatible) and .epub (other ebook readers). If you’d like one or both of these other formats as well, at no additional cost, just ask at the time of your order.
How? Well, there’s a space on the order form to add a note – unless you choose to use Amazon Pay, at which point you don’t get to complete the order form at all, we just magically know who you are and what you’re ordering.
Unless you’re telepathic, though, we won’t be aware that you also want the Kindle-compatible or .epub versions. If you go down the Amazon Pay route then, just drop me an email with your ebook format preferences once you’ve completed order.
And talking of Amazon Pay, it looks like we’ve finally identified the bug that has been making my life a misery for the last six months, by generating two payment authorisations for many orders and so making customers believe they might have acidentally paid twice (they never have, but you can see why that stresses people out…)
Anyway, fingers crossed but that particular nuisance looks fixed. If you’ve had Amazon Pay issues in the past, do try again (it saves you filling out the order form, if nothing else.) And even if there are problems, there’s no need to worry – things can always be put right, orders can be cancelled, payments can be refunded.
A mercoledì, allora!
Also don’t forget Saturday’s bulletin of ‘easy’ Italian news, if you didn’t get around to it over the weekend.
Of course, it’s absolutely free to read and listen to, as it is to subscribe to.
So why not include it in your study program?
