After years of blogging, my first book has been published and is out in the Norwegian bookstores (2017). Now in 2020 the book is finally in pocket version thanks to the popularity of the hardback version! If you want to read the first 27 pages for free and in Norwegian, see here. Buy the pocket version here for only 179 NOK.
Here are 5 reasons to read my book!
- It is rated over 4/5 on Goodreads!
My book has been read (or at least bought) by over 4000 persons. See reviews and ratings here from readers on Goodreads and many other platforms here. Available on ebook, paperback and even on Storytel.
2. It has been covered in Norway’s biggest media platforms
Aftenposten published a chapter of my book on the 17th of May, see here.
I was also on Nitimen (Radio P1), God Morgen Norge (TV2), Lindmo (TV NRK1), where I had the amazing experience to meet one of the funniest comedians in Norway, Dagfinn Lyngbø, and the Head of the Norwegian Labour Party Jonas Gahr Støre.
2. You will laugh
It is always dangerous to say that your own work is funny, but at least it was meant to be funny. So hopefully you will like it too!
3. It is not a compilation of my blogposts.
Many have asked me whether this is a compilation of my blogposts, and the answer is no. If you can read everything for free on my blog, why buy the book, right? The book is a journey through my first year in Norway in a novel-kind of book. A few of my blogposts are there, such as How to make things Koselig, but 85% of the book is new material.
5. Suited for everyone! If you are Norwegian, learn about your culture from a foreigner’s perspective. If you are a foreigner, recognise yourself and maybe practice your Norwegian!
Last but not least, you will get to read it before my grand mother who is obviously dying to read it (but it is still only available in Norwegian).
P.S: If you know a publisher willing to publish it in English or French let me know, my grand ma (and many non-Norwegian literates who’d love to read the book) would be so glad!
