Perhaps one day we shall read this in the original Italian, too, but for now let's do the English version! This was a suggestion from grayt (Tony Gray) and got some support over in Suggested Books.
The chapters are all quite short (mostly under 5 minutes), so feel free to claim more than one!
The Adventures of Pinocchio by C. Collodi. Translated from the Italian by Carol Della Chiesa.
Target completion date: May 1, 2006
I think it would be nice if we could pronounce the names consistently. As this is the English version, we'll pronounce Pinocchio the English way.
- Pinocchio: first o is long, like in "go" - not like in "got"
- Geppetto: starts with a g like in "giraffe" - not like in "got"
- Translator: Chiesa is pronounced ki-esa.
If you come across any other recurring names that are not obvious, let me know and I'll include them here.
Please claim chapter numbers!
