Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun, il pantofolaio, which means loafer or couch potato. See the noun used below in its context:

Mio padre è proprio un pantofolaio e preferisce la vita domestica alle uscite. Quando propongo di andare in un centro commerciale rifiuta. Il suo svago è  stare sul divano di casa a guardare la tv.

My father is really a couch potato and prefers being at home to going out.  When I suggest going to the mall, he refuses.  Sitting on the couch watching TV is his entertainment.

Ebook Update:

: Remember, if you received a code for the iPad or Mac version, you must redeem it within four weeks. This is controlled by Apple, not by me. If you have already downloaded the book, you’re good to go!

There’s only one code left for the iPad/Mac version! First come, first served! Please consider the Google Play/Google Books version. It’s more versatile: you can use it on your smartphone, tablet, computer and even download the pdf! Remember, if you donated and have a gmail account (it is required to use the Google Books version since I have to add your email to a list to turn on access), please send me your gmail address. A lot of you donated with other email addresses, and I do not know who has a Google account and who doesn’t.

: A lot of people have emailed me asking me why they did not get a code or why they haven’t received a pdf. The codes were limited, and in previous updates I had asked if that was the version people wanted to please send me a request. I also don’t know who uses Google/Gmail and who doesn’t, which is why it is  important that if you donated and want the Google Play version, to let me know since a lot of you donated with non-Google emails.

: Lastly, I haven’t forogtten and will not forget about anyone! 🙂 If I do not hear from those who donated, I will contact each of you who donated individually in the next couple of weeks to get you your copy of the ebook.

: Finally, there is a special thank you in the book to all who donated: you can read it here! Just go to page 5.
