    but parts of Game of Thrones were filmed here.

    There are some pretty sizeable bookstores here like Eymundsson - for example, here's the basement of one of the Eymundsson's (it's 3 or 4 stories).  About half the books you'll find in there are in English.  If I had to guess I'd say 80% of the books in Icelandic are from Icelandic authors, while about 80% of the books in English are from foreign authors.
