Do You Need A Reading Sheperd

Shepherd is a curated book discovery tool based on author recommendations: “We ask authors to share their favorite books around topics and themes they are passionate about and why they recommend each book.” Although the website is relatively new, it’s off to a great start. I decided to check it out by using the topic query for one of my favorite subjects: Iceland. The result led me to reading recommendations from novelist Michael Ridpath who has written a popular series on Iceland. 

Ridpath’s suggestions included The Little Book of the Icelanders by my friend  Alda Sigmundsdottir, Independent People by the Nobel prize-winner Halldor Laxness, and Silence of the Grave by the great contempory Icelandic novelist Arnaldur Indridason.

Give Sheperd a spin and let me know what you think.
