Our crown princess, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mette-Marit is a book lover. And she loves to share, loves to pass her passion on. Last year she started a new concept which she called "Litteraturtoget", The Litterature Train, where she chartered a train and travelled for a whole day though part of Norway. The mission - to spread her love of books. This year she decided to do it again, and the itinerary this time was from Trondheim south to Oslo, starting in Trondheim this morning.
One of the train carriages was transformed into a library, many of the shelves held the crown princess private books, other was filled by a nation library, Deichmanske.
Last year Mette-Marit was critiziced for promoting too many American writers. This year she is focusing on Norwegians.
Litteraturtoget will continue all day, with several stops at local libraries along the way.
