Reader's Digest now in Slovenian
The Mladinska knjiga publishing house has joined forces with Reader's Digest to make the magazine available in the Slovenian language. The first edition of the magazine, which will normally go on sale at the beginning of each month, was presented in Ljubljana.
General manager of Mladinska knjiga Milan Matos, speaking at the presentation, said he believes that both the Slovenian and Croatian editions will attract readers with their contents.
Managing editor of the international editions of Reader's Digest Raimo Moysa said Slovenian was the 21st language in which the magazine is published. Reader's Digest, founded in 1922, is read by over 100 million people and appears in 61 countries in the world.
The magazine deals with serious issues but is also known for humour, with one edition per year being devoted to it, as will be the first edition of Reader's Digest Slovenija which includes the actor and writer Desa Muck's ruminations on Slovenian humour.
Editor-in-chief of Reader's Digest Slovenija Meta Tavcar explained that in choosing topics for publication they would look in the rich Reader's Digest archives as well as publishing entirely new items including home stories.
Mladinska knjiga has received 18,900 advance subscriptions for Reader's Digest Slovenija. The first edition will be published in 26,000 issues.
