"Mi eldonis mian propran libron."

Translation:I published my own book.

I don't like the word "eldonis" for published. el,donis - from,gave
Seems like we are saying "I gave from my own book". Publikigis would, in my opinion be a better way to say published.

Verŝajne "eldoni" devenas de germana "herausgeben". el=heraus, doni=geben.
