Mondays in Iceland - #59

The Little Book of Icelandic

by Alda Sigmundsdóttir

Yet another book was recently published by a blog-pal—the second in the same week!

Alda Sigmundsdóttir has created a mini-publishing empire with her books on Icelandic culture. Her latest is, like her other ones, quirky and hilarious. It is available on Amazon, and should be in most of the usual Icelandic outlets by now.  You can check them all out on her website.

I was engrossed, although perhaps not quite as much as the fellow on the cover was! Like Shoshanah's book, I was fortunate to have a small role in this book's genesis—I was a beta reader. It was perhaps the most fun I've ever had while "working."

Last October, when I was in Reykjavík, I saw her other books on display all over the city. This series of books is an excellent introduction to the wonderful Icelandic culture.  Some of her books have been translated into Dutch, French, Spanish, and German as well:

I also got to be a beta reader for Alda a book or two ago. It was fun, indeed!

It good to see her success with this series.
