Jólabókaflóð

Saturday, December 24, 2022 - 9:00am to 8:00pm

Happy Jólabókaflóð! Want to join in on this Icelandic tradition? You can find a bit of inspiration for gifting books this holiday season.

Have you heard of Jólabókaflóð? Here are reasons why we all should be celebrating:

  1. Reading is a restful activity but we hardly carve out time to do so.
  2. Allows you to pause during the holiday chaos, leave your phone on silent, and crack open a book!
  3. Gifting books to others (or even yourself!) can be a new annual tradition to look forward to.

How do you pronounce Jólabókaflóð? Yo-la-bok-a-flot. In Icelandic, it roughly translates to “flood of books”!
