Iceland is a nation of just over 300,000 people, but it is also a place where one in ten people writes and publishes a book. It is a country of bookworms, and for Icelanders books are much more than mere entertainment. Writing and storytelling are embedded in the history of the nation, with famous sagas that tell the stories of the Norse settlers and the 13th century Golden Age. There is a well-known phrase in Icelandic "ad ganga med bok I maganum", which translates to ''everyone gives birth to a book.''
