Iceland - Books and Stuff...
In the UK, books about Iceland and Icelandic take a bit of searching out. They are variously spread out in the literature, travel, references and languages sections.
The best starters are the following, though, I in no way absolutely endorse any one of these (just to cover my butt) outright. They are all useful!
However, if you are in Iceland, or anyplace else, you can contact Mal og Menning, they have almost everything under the sun about Iceland and stuff.
