Why Is This a Norwegian Bestseller?

The newest bestseller in Norway is not the Stieg Larsson follow up, The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz (not yet, in any case).

It is a compact, hardcover book about chopping, stacking and drying wood for winter fires.  Per the publisher's rep who spoke at the Heartland Fall book show earlier this month,  Norwegian Wood: Chopping, Stacking, and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way is not just a how-to book, although it is that; it has become a must-have for coffeetable tops and bookshelves in direct sight-line of guests.  One wants to show off this beautiful book, not only because it is, in a lean, austere way with its stark photographs and its no-nonsense writing, but because it represents a cause célèbre that almost every Norwegian and, in fact, almost every Scandinavian wanted to celebrate -- (choose one:) the reduction of fossil fuel emissions, the ideal of a back-to-nature lifestyle, the hope of a not-yet-lost sense of being able to survive without modern conveniences like central heating and gas-piped fireplaces.

Now, you too can celebrate as this book arrives in America and to Dixon, Illinois, at Books on First.  Reserve your copy today or put it on your Christmas list (to give or to receive).  You will be more than pleased at the practical side as well as the personal aesthetics, not to mention being able to celebrate a cause not yet even defined.
