Talking Italian ebooks Ready, Set, Go!

Hi everybody,
especially who can read Italian.

To day IBS, the major internet distributor in Italy of books, dvd, cd, mp3 has started to sell ebooks. Italian ebooks that is.

Not many, although they promise to have 2000 in June.

This is the third step that started with Mondadori, yesterday with the new company Edigita and to day with the announcement by IBS.

I checked and I saw for 5 euro "I Visigoti e la rinascita culturale del secolo VII. In Italian yuppie! epub with ADE. I will buy it.

For me and for us Italian this is a major breakthrough. God bless English books and old time classics, but being able to read something new on our beloved ereader, that's something.
Also, let me say this, our books, both in narrative and not, are quite interesting.

Hi Joseph.

Although not of Italian decent I spent much of my youth in an Italian (mostly) community in New York.

Many of my friends had parents directly from Italy and you remind me of them (the parents). Except that you look like Clark Gable. I suspect that you must be from the northern parts of Italia. Possibly the Po Valley area.

At any rate what caught my attention was the Edigita link.

At the top of the article is the word ASCOLTA. Clicking on it will read the article in Italian. It sounded great.

Not that I understood a word of it. I only studied one year of French in high school. (I realy wanted to take Latin, but they canceled it. And Italian was full up)

I'm very happy that Italy will have its own ebooks.

Congratulazioni Italia

Hi Beppe

thanks for the posting. Now, my Italian is way way basic - but I would be interested in expanding it with the help of books. eBooks might be the way to go (although I am still working on 'il nome della rosa' but should get that finished in the next 10 years or so :-)

The ISP link however doesn't open for me any bookstore - have you got another link?

Hello inhabitant of The Galctic Center,
Thank you for the kind words. You must have very sharp eyes. I do indeed look like old Clark Gable. Exactly in the measure of 66%. How so? Just click here and you will find out. This is a life of clicks.

And again your eagle eyes did not fail you. I am proud to be from North West Lombardy, which is exactly on the northern slopes of the Po valley.
Ciao ciao

Just a little curiosity, oh Marcus Antonius Gordianus Pius,

That coin you have, do you jump it in your hand while reading?

an other one, if I may ask

Did you ever tried fencing with a foil? or owned one?

Thank you in advance

Yay, a miracle. And a ruin for my finances! I knew there's something sold by Franco Angeli (scientific texts), by the way, if there are other Italians around (or Italian-speakers)

(the site is still in beta... m÷ves, come si dice da noi!)

Ieri funzionava. Intanto l'hanno messo in marcia. Ho visto che hanno la coscienza di Zeno e rileggerlo su ereader Ŕ un godere. Con tutti quei readers sei un pro?

Actually I did - for about 14 years. Made it up to the qualifications for European Championship when my knees decided they had enough and needed major surgery. I was devastated at the time. I fenced in the time when ladies were only allowed foils.
