From time to time there is a very popular book market on the ground-floor in Perlan in the Wintergarden (Vetrargar­urinn). Icelanders, being called the "Nation of Books", read a lot and I wanted to add this tip to show you how well attended this book market is. There is chaos there the first days. And if you ever happen to be in Perlan while there is a book market take a look inside and check out the prices of the books. You can get all kinds of travel books on Iceland for a much lower price than in the stores.

There is also a CD and DVD market from time to time, and it is always very crowded. I go every time to both markets and so do almost all the citizens of ReykjavÝk and neighbouring areas.
