“This island nation [Iceland] of just over 300,000 people has more writers, more books published and more books read, per head, than anywhere else in the world.”
“Everyone in the country [Iceland] gets books as Christmas presents.”

Below are two photos of me in Reykjavik, Iceland. The first was in a new book store standing by the Icelandic literature section. The other is a used book store that just had books everywhere…on shelves, on the floor, piled in stacks, etc.
