Books!

We've acquired some heathen books for the library.

Read Swain Wodening's Theodisc Geleafa over the weekend, have started on Diana Paxson's Essential Asatru.

The one I really wanted to start in on was Kveldulf Gundarsson's Elves, Wights and Trolls, but the typeface is too small for me until I get to the eye doctor in a week or so. :(

The Gundarsson book sounds fascinating.

It does! I'm looking forward to reading it in a few weeks :). Actually, I've enjoyed just about everything I've read of his.

Funny- a book text typeface should be fairly legible even if it's small. Wonder what they used & what the point size is...

(Sorry, design geek mode kicks in automatically when folks mention fonts to me) :-D

I suspect the point size is fine, but I'm in dire need of new glasses right now. Been putting off getting them for over a year because my prescription is so extreme, but I really can't wait much longer--got an appointment in a couple of weeks.

Can you recommend any books or translations of Icelandic rune poems?

I know that several of Edred Thorsson's books include all three of the rune poems, but if you're looking for an online source, the Northvegr site has them:
