Easy Italian books

I am a great fan of Montalbano but my Italian is not good enough to read the stories in Italian. I am at level 13. Any suggestions for suitable reading material in Italian please. Brian D

Have you thought about reading children's books?

I've seen some nice Italian readers for beginners in Barnes and Nobles in bigger cities like Chicago, especially in university libraries

Yes I have thought of that but don't know where to buy such books. Can they be bought in ordinary bookshops? B

Probably not, unfortunately. I'd look online at amazon or the kindle store. You also have to look at how much you know and whatever your comfortable with. (your level of fluency) Good luck!

Easy Italian Reader by Riccarda Sagesse is really good and at level 13 it will be good for you. It's well laid out and has audio too.Get through this and you can start on Montalbano !!!
