Serbian and newish book porn

As I promised someone on Twitter, pics of my growing collection of Serbian language books (much thanks again to Zoran Živković for sending me copies of his works so I can work on learning that language).  Tentative plans are to have a series of reviews of his and other Serbian authors in August.  29 books in Serbian so far, with more to follow, third-most behind my thousands of English-language works and 300 or so Spanish-language books.


Yes, some of these are translations from the original English, but most were originally written in Serbian.


Some of the Pavić stories are available in English, including the last book, Drugo Telo (Second Body) being available online in English translation. Highly recommended.


And here are a few of the English-language works that have arrived recently.  I wonder who would want to read the book on the bottom?  And the cover of the middle book certainly ain't no Ten, let me tell ya...


Wexler's book will be reviewed later today; the others sometime over the next few weeks.

I'm looking forward to a review of The Way of Kings. I had promised myself NOT to start another huge, ongoing series, but the excerpt TOR posted recently looked fun enough to tempt me (except for the female POV, but I rately like any female character, so I've learned to just bear with their chapters).
