A Guide to the Serbian Mentality  by Momo Kapor, is a pretty darn good! NO, it’s a GREAT book.

You know how when you are preparing to go to a new place, you may go out and purchase, or at least look, at a tourist book so that you might find all of the best places to go?  Well, this book is THAT BOOK to read before traveling to Serbia. A Guide to the Serbian Mentality is a great precursor book for those new or seasoned travelers making their way to Serbia. It’s a great cultural reference, it’s fun to read, you’ll read about foods you’ll just have to try, and not just places to visit, but why.  There surely are places I want to visit because of this book. Thanks Gospodin Kapor.

Book Review: Serbian Fairy Tales

Connect with Serbian culture by enjoying its fairy tales.

For Christmas, I received the book Serbian Fairy Tales, compiled and edited by David Falkayn, published in 2004 by Athena Books.

The book didn’t take long to get through as it is only 68 pages. It contains 13 short stories and two illustrations, found at the end of the book.

I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quick read, to those interested in learning about Serbian culture, or those that enjoy fantasy tales of far of lands.

Book Review: Fun With Serbian Letters

I am so thrilled to have found such a useful book.

Fun With Serbian Letters Book Review
Nothing like free piggies on a warm day while reading “Fun With Serbian Letters”. My Girls.

As soon as my book, “Fun With Serbian Letters” arrived in the mail, I immediately and excitedly opened it.

What can I say…it is exactly what I have been looking for!
