I knew I wanted to write about this before I finished the Reader’s Digest article. How cool is this?
There are approximately 2.5 miles of books in the village of Mundal, part of Fjaerland, Norway. Northeast of Bergen, it looks like an absolutely beautiful area to live and visit!
Knowing me, and my love of books, I don’t think I would want to leave! But, the bokbyen (“booktown”) is only open for business from May to mid-September.
But, fear not! The online side is open year-round.
I would love to at least see the stunning glaciers. And then, read a book next to them.
