Today sees the start of spring, in the northern hemisphere at least.
In Italy it’s tonight, at 10.58 p.m. Central European Time.
Think of me at that moment, as I’ll be doing Olaf the Snowman’s song and dance routine from the magical Disney film ‘Frozen’.
Which coincidentally the pre-schoolers and I watched a week or so ago.
If you have the bandwith, click here to watch the original “In Summer” song, featuring said Olaf (many thanks to the Official Disney UK Youtube channel).
If not, well think of a hyped-up snowman, looking forward to a summer that he’s never experienced:
Winter’s a good time to stay in and cuddle
But put me in summer and I’ll be a… (Olaf looks down and notices a puddle)
And yes, I know this is lousy marketing:
Link to a video on someone else’s site? Whatever next? That’s the end of your ‘Spring Sale’ announcement right there. Go get yourself a proper job if you won’t take things seriously!
But… it’s spring!
Besides today being the end of winter and the start of something much nicer, I suppose I SHOULD mention that the EasyReaders.Org ‘Spring Sale’ has begun…
Which means you can now save 20% on online Italian lessons and ebooks.
The coupon code you need to get your discount is:
(and the rest of this is copied from last year, apart from another Olaf quote…)
Don’t forget to use it – every time we do an offer, someone writes to say they bought some lessons and some ebooks but forgot to apply the discount code.
First, make your selections from our online shop.
Then visit your shopping cart and copy and paste the coupon code (above, in bold) into the box where it says ‘Apply coupon’.
Press the ‘Apply coupon’ button and, as if by magic, everything will be 20% cheaper!
But note that the individual prices of the items in your cart DON’T ACTUALLY CHANGE.
I have no idea. They just don’t.
What happens, though, is that the 20% discount is applied to the cart total, not to each individual ebook or whatever.
Got that? The prices don’t change, the total changes.
This confuses me every time, and it’s my shop.
Scroll down to check that the cart total has been discounted BEFORE you proceed to the payment stage.
It’s not as complicated as it sounds, though, so don’t worry.
And if you do have any problems, just email me for fast and efficient technical support.
Fortunately, I’m clairvoyant, and have infinite patience, which helps.
Though when people write for help with their iPads (or Kindles for that matter), I usually suggest chucking them out of the window and using a proper computer.
But hey, maybe I’ll be in a good mood when you encounter your technical issue…
Besides I.T. help, I can also make suggestions regarding which materials might work best for you.
So if you don’t know where to begin, email me your current level in Italian and what you think you need to improve.
Advice will be forthcoming.
Anyway, here’s everything you need to know about the Spring Sale, in one handy list!

When life gets rough, I like to hold on to my dream
Relaxing in the summer sun, just lettin’ off steam
Oh the sky would be blue, and you guys’ll be there too
When I finally do what frozen things do in summerrrrrrr
All emails I send to lists, including this one, have an unsubscribe link.
If there isn’t one, it’s because I am writing to you personally, or to a small group of email addresses that I have put in manually. For example, three or four people who’ve bought the same ebook.
Anyway, the point is that if you get fed up with hearing about the Spring Sale, or are simply bored by my drivel, look for the word ‘unsubscribe’ in the footer section of the email and follow the simple instructions.
Seriously, do it.
Life’s too short to waste bothering people who don’t want to be bothered.
