    the reading culture here, more than the whole wall full of books almost every Icelandic adult has, is that when you walk into these big bookstores like Eymundsson, a surprisingly large percent of the books are in Icelandic.  Tons and tons of Icelandic books... written by people in a country with less people than the city of Santa Ana, California!   People who also speak English and could just as readily read English books!

    Reading is very well respected here, and I greatly admire that.

      they had more books by the author Joe R. Lansdale from Nacogdoches, Texas than any big bookstore in Dallas.
