A while ago, I posted a bookish bucket list, talking about the bookshops around the world that I most wanted to try and visit at some point during my lifetime. It’s actually one of the most popular posts I’ve ever shared here on my blog, proving that I’m not the only bookworm with a healthy dose of wanderlust.
Thankfully, it took less time than expected for me to be able to tick one of the shops off my list when I tracked down Mál og Menning during my recent return to Reykjavik, Iceland.
It’s spread across several floors, has a huge collection of books – in both Icelandic and English – and even has its own onsite café. It lived up to all my bookish dreams and of course, I picked up a few good books whilst I was there.
Here’s hoping it won’t be too long before I can tick another shop off the list, and perhaps you can suggest a few of your own favourites that I can add to it.
