Iceland: Proving once again that Print is not dead.

Deep in the Iceland regions we have many books being published. In Iceland, traditionally books have been known to be given as Christmas presents. Which is no doubt why, books being published tend to rise during the Christmas months. However this year that’s not the case.

A total of 842 books are registered in the annual Bókatíðindi, an overview of new publications released last weekend, which is a new record. Registered titles are up from 757 last year and from 466 in 2002—they have increased by 376 in one decade.

Never before have as many Icelandic books of fiction been released as this year, a total of 101, 57 new releases and 44 books that are being republished. If poems and plays are added to that number, it grows to 138, Fréttablaðið reports.

It can be argued that the rise of books being published has rose because, with the number of books being published, included in those numbers are E-books and books in Audio format. It also just proves that no matter where you live books can have a heart all its own.
“Bókatíðindi reflects that book publishing is shifting towards the same development as in our neighboring countries, that publishers must release books in many formats,” Kristján commented. This year, 94 eBooks and 50 audio books are registered.

“In the past years a slow change has occurred in the publishing pattern,” he added. “Book sale is not mainly tied to the Christmas book flood but books are sold throughout the year.”
