  2. Dear Evgenia,
    thank you for your question and your interest in “Princi i vogel”. We have two version of the book which you can see by clicking here
    The audiobook version with 2 CDs is out of stock, while the regular Albanian version is still available to be ordered.
    Kind regards

  3. Eugenia asked about the accompanying book in Albanian, that’s what I’d like to know too. And are there any other Albanian audio books out there?

  4. I am glad that Princi vogel will be published in the Geg dialect. There is someone intelligent enough to stand up for the dialect that is spoken by the majority of Albanians today. It is unfortunate that under communism there was an indoctrination program to teach albanians that the Geg dialect was inferior to the tosk dialect. Intellectuals who opposed Enver Hoxha were either jailed or executed. It is important that dialects are not lost. For they tell the history of our language. There is no right or wrong language as Albanians are taught in schools. It would be nice if Kosova adopted its own dialect since the tosk dialect is not spoken in Kosova. Its time even for Albania to restore the Geg dialect which was the official language of Albania before the communists changed it to their own. Communism died in Albania and so should the Tosk dialect as a standard Albanian language. Even Tirona was a geg city. They spoke a dialect similar to diber until the communists banned the northern dialect after they took over. Time to respect the Geg dialect and have people learn it as well in schools. Like we have many words in English we also have many words in North and south. Its time to make the Geg dialect official too. If Tosk Albanians can learn many languages like Greek and Italian and Serbian. I don’t see why they can’t learn the Geg dialect too.

  5. We just got another 6 copies of the book today. We’ve placed a small announcement on our website. If you’re still interested, please hurry as last time they were finished in just two days from the moment they were live on the website.
