Who am I?
My name is Bára, and I’m a 29 year old bookworm from Iceland.
I like audiobooks. They’re handy while travelling and when I just want to curl up with my eyes closed and listen to a story.
I also like the Icelandic sagas. I’ve studied their protagonists for both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Comparative Literature, and I have a certain fondness for them.
My work involves narration, among many other things, and just as you need to warm up for singing, you need to warm up your voice for narration. As a result of this, it seemed like a good idea to start reading audio recordings of the sagas, during my warm up sessions. My voice won’t be perfect (if it were, it would be time to start working!) but hopefully some use and enjoyment can be found in them regardless.
This is my own pet project, so feel free to download them for your own personal use. The audio files can be streamed directly from the bandcamp page, or downloaded in your preferred format, either by chapter or the complete audio book (though of course separated by chapter for easy navigation). There’s no minimum price so you can download them for free, though donations are greatly appreciated if you enjoy the recordings. The sagas read are chosen on a whim, so feel free to send requests.
Feel free to visit my site at bara.is. I hope you enjoy the Saga Project audio books.
