Book lovers beware. Bókin is addictive. Open since 1964, this eclectic bibliophile paradise has piles and piles of books on every subject and in dozens of languages, many beautifully bound. I wandered in the other day (for the first time- I’m kicking myself for not checking it out earlier) and got three great books (in English!) for 1000ISK (less than $10), which is really a treat in a city where that same amount couldn’t buy you lunch. And yes, that’s a Christmas tree made from books. You’re welcome.
