hey.

When ever i buy a language book I like to write in it : My first book, or second or so.

i'm not sure how to say "my first book" in greek...

i've not studied it for long now! it was a christmas present...but.

so if someone could write it to me.

thank you.

[face=spionic]to\n prw=ton bibli/on mou[/face] seems reasonable.

really?

Ho, i'm so proud of me!

I had written:

tòn próton biblion emou!

that's pretty near for a 5 day long learning experience!

waho, way to go me!

Or you can ignore the article : [face=SPIonic]e)mo\n prw=ton bibli/on [/face] or put a neuter article [face=SPIonic]to\ prw=ton bibli/on e)mou=[/face].

Nevertheless, you can be proud !
