la mollica

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun, la mollica, which refers to the soft part of the bread: the part of the bread that is inside the confines of the crust (la crosta). See the noun used below in its context:

Mario: “Quanto mi piace la mollica del pane: è morbida, sazia e ci puoi spalmare tutte le salse che vuoi!”

Mario: “How I like the soft part of the bread: it is soft, satisfies, and you can spread all the sauces you want on it!”

Teresa: “Davvero? A me, invece non piace per niente. È troppa massa! Preferisco la crosta.”

Teresa: “Really? On the contrary, I don’t really like it at all.  It is too heavy. I prefer the crust.”

: I just want to thank everyone who donated in May-July! It’s really helped our site out a lot! Remember, if you donated, and you didn’t receive a copy of the ebook or a link to download it, please email me! I haven’t intentionally forgot about anyone, and I want to make sure everyone gets a copy!

: If you haven’t done so, please update your copy of the Mac/iPad/iPad mini version of our ebook. We have added audio recordings so you can hear how some of the words highlighted in the book are pronounced. So far there are two chapters with audio recordings, and a third is on the way. We hope to finish the recordings in the next couple of weeks. To update your book on the Mac, follow these instructions. For the iPad, try these.

: Apple let me publish an ebook version of the book without recordings. This version can be used on your iPhone. I had a lot of requests for this. You can find that version here.

: B&N still has not approved my vendor account. I will have to call them next week and see what the problem is. The Nook version is ready for sale, but I am just waiting for them to approve my account.

: The paperback version is almost ready for sale. The proof has been approved, and now we just have to wait for it to go live. I’ll publish the link once it is ready. The book will be 6″ x 9″.

: The Kindle version is also available for download in all of the Amazon stores: just search for “Il vero italiano”! 🙂

: Buon week end a tutti!
