Expensive E-Books Available, Translated by Google

E-books in broken Icelandic, by non-existent authors, translated by Google Translate, are now available for your purchase at amazon.com. Price tag: USD 49.00-62.00 apiece.

One of those is Black Daga, a work reportedly by Anton Steinþórsson, who, according to RÚV, cannot be found in the Icelandic national register. The Kindle version costs USD 48.68.

Njósnari Sögur by Ingibjörg Björnsdóttir is another option, available for USD 62.06 in the Kindle version.

The opening paragraphs of both works are displayed on the website, with suspiciously many grammatical errors.

Growing up, you may have been taught not to judge a book by its cover, but in this case, it’s safe to make an exception. When even the title fails to be grammatically correct, the content probably isn’t either.
