Desember 11 – Books and stuff

I started off today by going to the Raðhús Reykjavíkur and getting some more maps for my friend. They are pretty maps. I then proceeded forward, but couldn’t find the Eymundsson bookstore, so I turned back and went to Kaffitár for

mmmm

This shows that the price of 1 cup of coffee is about 500 kr.

From there, I went back to Mál og Menning, to double check the prices of stationeries, as well as to decide what books to buy.

Minecraft Combat Handbook, in Icelandic!

And I found a giant book called Atlas of Iceland. It’s like somebody tried to use Google Earth offline, and ended up with a giant piece of paper artifact that is 10 kg heavy and costs 200 dollars.

I also visited the other Eymundsson bookstore (Eymundsson is a chain of bookstores) which is close to Mál og Menning. It had a café inside it too, but as usual, being a stingy pone, I didn’t buy anything!

Oh and this again…

Það haldar áfram að gerast!

It keeps happening!

Translation:

Hvert er uppáhalds súkkulaðið hans Stekkjarstaurs? Súkkulaðistaur.
What is the favorite chocolate of Stekkjarstaurs? Chocolate pole (I don’t know, maybe a kebab made of chocolate?).

This time the pun doesn’t even remotely work in English!

So… after looking through more bookstores, including a second-hand bookstore called Bókakjallarinn (it also sells Icelandic porn magazines published several decades ago, for some reason), I decided to buy the following books:

Flóttinn til skýjanna, Litli prinsinn, and Ljósaskipti. The escape to the clouds, The little prince, and Twilight.

I hope that when I return, I’ll have Icelandic skills enough to… if not enough to read Litli prinsinn, at least Ljósaskipti, since I heard that Twilight is not a difficult novel to read.
