I know i have seen them once before but lost the details - they were produced in both Greek or English versions and white hardcover... well she owes me! ;-)

She never complains when i ask her to do my shopping! She buys a copy for herself as well be it cds books resources anything....

I also wanna see if i can get my hands on some of the newer Lykeio Ellinidon resourse - eg Boules cd + Book, I also heard they were producing or produced a book and cd with music + songs+dances of Lazarines etc

its all good

Yvonne before i forget - did you find Mario Sofronious number in Cyprus - and if its not too hard the address or phone numbers of the abovementioned bookshops - even if its a street name..lol... thanks heaps

Hi Vas,

Decided to answer here instead of a pm. The books were published in both English and Greek. There are no ISBN numbers. You can't imagine what I went through to get the Syllogos in Skotoussa to get one for the Greek edition of my book.

Anyway, supposing they are still located in the same place, here is Melissa's address and phone number:

10 Navarinou St.
10680 Athens phone: 210-36-00-865

The second volume was published in 1984; if I remember correctly, the first volume came out about 2 years prior to that.

The info for Ianos:

Aristotelous 7
Thessaloniki 546 24 phone: 2310-277 004 or fax 2310 284 832

their Athens branch:

Stadiou 24
Athens 10564 phone: 210 321 7917 or fax 210 321 7686

Eleftheroudakis is also on Stadiou. I think they even have a website.

If I remember correctly I saw the Boules double CD and book either at Ianos in Thessaloniki or at Studio 52 (check their website). I have no knowledge about a Lazarina book or CD; if you find out, let me know.

Sorry but haven't been able to find Marios' info as of yet. Post something on the Cyprus section here asking for someone to get it for you. When you reach him, greet him for me and also give me his info.

Filakia,
Yvonne
