yes, i've been to a book store before. yes, i've seen movies and shows on tv. unfortunately you're missing my point - however, i don't feel like
wasting time arguing back and forth with you about it.. so i'm just going to post some more informative stuff here instead.
Another example of a book would be A Journey to the Center of the Earth, written by Jules Verne in 1864.
"Descend, bold traveler, into the crater of Snæfellsjökull, which the shadow of Scartaris touches (lit: tastes) before the Kalends of July, and you
will attain the centre of the earth; which I have done. Arne Saknussemm" (the secret message in A Journey to the Center of the Earth)
"Snæfellsjökull (Icelandic for "snow-fells glacier" or "snow-mountains glacier") is a stratovolcano with a glacier covering its summit in
western Iceland. The name of the mountain is actually Snæfell, but it is normally called "Snæfellsjökull" to distinguish it from two other
mountains with this name. It is situated on the most western part of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in Iceland. Sometimes it may be seen from the city of
Reykjavík over the bay of Faxaflói, at a distance of 120 km.
The mountain is one of the most famous sites of Iceland, primarily due to the novel A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864) by Jules Verne, in
which the protagonists find the entrance to a passage leading to the center of the earth on Snæfellsjökull.
The mountain is included in the Snæfellsjökull National Park (Icelandic: Þjóðgarðurinn Snæfellsjökull)." (Took from Wikipedia.com)
"Huldufólk, or Hidden People, are a part of Icelandic folklore.  Building projects in Iceland are sometimes altered to prevent damaging the
rocks where they are believed to live.  According to these Icelandic folk beliefs, one should never throw stones because of the possibility
of hitting the huldufólk. In 1982, 150 Icelanders went to the NATO base in Keflavík to look for "elves who might be endangered by American
phantom jets and Awacs reconaissance planes." In 2004, Alcoa had to have a government expert certify that their chosen building site was free of
archaeological sites, including ones related to huldufólk folklore, before they could build an aluminum smelter in Iceland. Icelandic gardens
often feature tiny wooden álfhól (elf houses) for elves/hidden people to live in. Some Icelanders have also built tiny churches to convert
elves to Christianity. President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson has explained the existence of huldufólk tales by saying: "Icelanders are few in
number, so in the old times we doubled our population with tales of elves and fairies."  Hidden people often appear in the significant or
prophetic dreams of Icelanders. They are usually described as wearing nineteenth-century Icelandic clothing, and are often described as
They are also a part of folklore in the Faroe Islands. In Faroese folk tales, Huldufólk are said to be "large in build, their
clothes are all grey, and their hair black. Their dwellings are in mounds, and they are also called Elves." "
