When we’re not publishing and promoting new ebook titles for students of Italian (and other languages), we like to do the occasional ‘Half-price Ebook of the Week’ offer.
Just £3.99 for an ebook that normally sells for £7.99 is excellent value, especially as you can ask for additional versions which are suitable for use on Kindles and other ebook readers, at no extra charge.
The problem with offering one ebook title, though, is level. We use six levels and six half-levels to give an indication of the ease or difficulty of our texts, so that’s quite a range!
Take a look at our online Catalog and try comparing the texts in the FREE sample chapters at different levels, say A1 (the easiest) versus C2 (the hardest). They’re totally different, and it’s that which makes it difficult to select a single ‘Half-price Ebook of the Week’ that will have wide appeal, no matter where people currently are with their language studies.
So we’re experimenting with a different format of promotion, the idea being to offer a coupon code that’s equivalent to a 50% reduction in price on any ‘easy reader’ ebook, and let the potential customers pick one out for themselves.
Last week’s new publication, ‘Rigoletto‘, for instance, is no longer discounted 25% and so sells at our usual ‘easy reader’ price of £7.99.
Were we to offer it as a ‘Half-price Ebook of the Week’ at some point (we usually wait a few years after publication before doing so), then half-price would be £3.99. The difference is £4.
To offer everyone the chance of a half-price ‘easy reader’ at their particular levels, I therefore need to create a ‘one use’ coupon for that amount, £4.
Here it is:
Browse our online Catalog, downloading sample chapters for anything that interests you, until you find one or more titles that will liven up your studies and provide valuable extra reading/listening practice.
Add them to your Cart, in the usual way.
Then copy and paste coupon code Save £4! into your cart (before proceeding with the payment, obviously…) and that’ll reduce the total of whatever’s in there by the promised £4.
Just buy one title, normal price £7.99 and (assuming you remember to use coupon code Save £4! ) the amount charged will be just £3.99.
N.b. This offer ends during the night of Dec. 3rd 2022. Please note that it is one discount, not one discount on each product. Also the technology is set up to be one use per customer, so if you mess up your order (say you choose the wrong payment option), then try again with a new order, the coupon won’t work the second time.
In which case, just email. I’ll fix it for you by deleting the messed-up order, and you’re good to try again, more carefully.
So, ready to pick out your own, personalised -50% BotW (Book of the Week) from our Catalog page?
Don’t forget to take a look at the free sample chapters before you decide what to spend your £4 discount on!

How do I access my ebooks?
When your order is ‘completed’ (normally immediately after your payment), a download link will be automatically emailed to you. It’s valid for 7 days and 3 download attempts so please save a copy of the .pdf ebook in a safe place. Other versions of the ebook, where available, cannot be downloaded but will be emailed to people who request them. There’s a space to do that on the order form – where it says Additional information, Order notes (optional). If you forget, or if you have problems downloading the .pdf, don’t worry! Email us at the address on the website and we’ll help. Also, why not check out our FAQ?
Have you listened to Tuesday’s FREE bulletin of ‘easy’ Italian news (text + online audio), which was published this morning?
That valuable resource for students of Italian is FREE because its bills are (mostly) paid with contributions from readers.
Thanks to everyone who helped the ‘easy news’ team out with their donations during their appeal last week. The appeal has ended, but if you missed it, it’s never to late to support the website with your donation.
