If you're interested in the runes, then give this book a read. This and Futhark are probably the best books that B&N has available. It's also the best book on the Anglo-Saxon Futhork that I've ever seen, way better than anything Galina Kraskova puts out. It's not perfect in my opinion, but what is? It's definitely worth a look for any runer.
