5 links on a Friday, 14 October 2016

Bi- and multilingualism is good for you:

Invisible Library:



Inside the world of book publishing:
10 People (Besides The Author) Who Bring A Book Into the World.
They forgot to mention all the people who print and put the books together (or control the machinery that does). 

What reader wouldn't like to live in a library?

Book list:
37 Books With Plot Twists That Will Blow Your Mind.
I have only read 4 of these books, so I have something to look forward to...

Dear reader, if you have come across an interesting link dealing with books, libraries, bookshops, reading, writing, language or translation, why not let me know? Just leave the link in a comment and I'll take a look at it.

Thank you for the link, Stephen. It looks like a very good source of Laxness information. I'm definitely putting it in a future Friday Links, and might do a post about it as well.
