Reading a good book is one of life’s greatest pleasures, in my opinion. I’m getting ready to launch a Scandinavian-themed online book club this spring, and in preparation, I’m gathering a collection of ideas here on this page, in hopes that it will inspire you as well.

For those of you who want Scandinavian FOOD books–cookbooks, food memoirs, etc.–you’ll want to click here for a page dedicated to Scandinavian cookbooks.

However, for the rest of you–those who simply want some good Scandinavian-theme literature, contemporary fiction, and nonfiction–you’re in the right place. Of the books that follow, some are ones I have read and enjoyed. Others are ones that people have recommended to me. They’re either by Scandinavian or Nordic authors, or set in that region.

If you’re interested in learning more about the online book club, sign up here to be the first to hear when it launches.
