I am both an author and a Goodreads librarian (also a real life library and information scientist). Most of what I have published falls within my main scholarly field which is folklore.

As a Goodreads librarian I have mostly added ebook editions that I've made from out of copyright Icelandic texts for my website Rafbókavefurinn. I also try to add Icelandic books in general and of course I fix inaccuracies when I encounter them.

Ég var að lesa smásagnasafn með misgóðum sögum. Ein greip mig strax þannig að ég fann bók eftir höfundinn. Mæli með henni.

Ég á örugglega eftir að lesa fleira af því sem GRRM hefur skrifað í þessum sama heimi. Það er margt þarna sem lofar góðu. En samt engin snilld.

Rithöfundur berst við drauga róttækrar fortíðar og vonbrigði samtímans. Smá gúggl leiddi í ljós að ég væri ekki sá eini sem sá líkindin við The Big Chill sem kom út á næstum sama tíma. Tíðarandinn skín í gegn. En auðvitað gerólíkar bækur enda er þess ...more

Við endurlestur þá hitti þessi mann eiginlega meira í hjartastað. Líklega af því að ég átti ekki börn þegar ég las bókina síðast.

Áhugavert á köflum. Minna áhugavert á öðrum köflum. Örugglega meira spennandi ef maður hefur ekki lesið The Princess and the Queen.

Stephen King
“knowing that to be a librarian was to come as close as any human being can to sitting in the peak-seat of eternity’s engine.”
Stephen King, It

“There were two sides fighting—that was true enough—but they weren’t the inner planets versus the Belters. They were the people who thought it was a good idea to kill people who looked or acted differently against the people who didn’t.”
James S.A. Corey, Leviathan Wakes

Harper Lee
“[S]ome men who cheat their wives out of grocery money wouldn't think of cheating the grocer. Men tend to carry their honesty in pigeonholes, Jean Louise. They can be perfectly honest in some ways and fool themselves in other ways.”
Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman

Eric Hobsbawm
“If physical mobility is an essential condition of freedom, the bicycle has probably been the greatest single device for achieving what Marx called the full realization of the possibilities of being human invented since Gutenberg, and the only one without obvious drawbacks.”
Eric Hobsbawm, Interesting Times

Neil Gaiman
“Which has left me with a healthy respect and fondness for higher education that those of my friends and family who attended universities were cured of long ago.”
Neil Gaiman, The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction
