I won a MIBBY!

My Independent Bookshop has just awarded my virtual bookshop ‘Books Of Iceland’ a MIBBY for shop of the week!

My Independent Bookshop is a website set up to provide a whole new perspective to book buying, esp. in light of Amazon’s hold on the market. You can set up a ‘virtual bookshop’ and choose 12 of your favourite books, before enticing people to visit from the virtual street. All virtual shops are linked to real independent shops – mine is linked to Wenlock Books – who fulfil orders via Hive.

My shop is here, and contains books by Hallgrímur Helgason, Halldór Laxness, Quentin Bates and Guðrún Eva Mínervudóttir amongst others. Oh, and Iceland, Defrosted, of course.
