Kathleen N. Daly's Norse Mythology A to Z, as revised by Marian Rengel and published by Facts on File, is a handy reference to have on hand when pursuing Norse mythology. It's not a book that you're likely to read cover to cover, but it is extremely useful when you're in the middle of another text and find you can't recall all 9 worlds of Yggdrassil, or who Var is, or what were the 13 words in the Alvíssmál, etc.

A detailed yet accessible book ("designed specifically for young readers"), "Norse Mythology A to Z" is well-organized and written in an easy-to-understand style. It's a great resource for authors, kids, and others who are interested in a concise listing of the who, what, and where of Norse mythology.

somewhat dry, but it had a good overview to norse myhtology.
