New Half-Price Italian ‘Easy Reader’ Book of the Week!

This week at we have a half-price ebook ‘Book of the Week’ offer!

Cover image: Nuovo cinema paradisoIt’s Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, one of the classics of Italian cinema.

Thanks to Caroline, whose class is doing the film for their Italian A-level exam, who suggested this.

Normally £7.99, this ebook version of the classic movie will be 50% off, just £3.99, for the next week or so.

So, what’s it about?

One of Italian cinema’s masterpieces, the Oscar-winning ‘Nuovo Cinema Paradiso’, directed by Giuseppe Tornatore, is retold here for learners of Italian.

Growing up without a father in post-WW2 Sicily isn’t easy, but Totò makes friends with Alfredo, projectionist at the town’s only cinema, and develops a passion for movies…

And for £3.99 you get:

  • .pdf e-book (+ audio available free online at
  • 8 chapters to read and listen to
  • comprehension questions to check your understanding
  • an Italian/English glossary of ‘difficult’ terms for the level
  • download the Free Sample Chapter (.pdf) to check the level and format BEFORE you buy

Your e-book will be emailed to you within 24 hours of your purchase.

What else should I add?

Nuovo Cinema Paradiso is included elsewhere in our online shop as part of the ‘Nine Book Of The Film Easy Readers – Save 50%!‘ bundle, which offers exceptional value.

But anyone who tries Nuovo Cinema Paradiso this week and, enjoying it, would like to buy the ‘Nine Book Of The Film Easy Readers – Save 50%!‘ bundle, don’t let the fact that you already have one of the titles put you off.
