Penninn Eymundsson: "For Bookholics" Reykjavík Region Shopping Tip by nomadig

Reykjavík Region Shopping: 29 reviews and 15 photos

Penninn Eymundsson is the largest bookstore in Iceland, and it has surprisingly big and good English books section. Other languages can be found, too, but the selection is tilted towards Nordic languages.

The store has a good selection of stationery and office supplies. Postcards are available, too.

What to buy: Consider spending some money to a good Iceland photobook and make your friends and relatives green with envy when flipping though the pages.

What to pay: The books are somewhat more pricey than in the mainland.

Address: Austurstræti 18
