Well, its not necessarily about reading runes. There's actually no evidence that the runes were ever traditionally used for divination (what is referred to in lore is basically casting lots, but its unknown what was used). There's very little history to go by with regards to Seidr practice, so people who practice their modern version of it have mostly disregarded what is there, and instead incorporated Harner-style journeying, with norse-germanic symbolism.

Seior is apparently a Norse tradition of reading runes.

This Wikipedia article, with its links, may serve as an introduction to what Seiðr was about:

Here is a short academic article in English:

Reading through claims about Norse mythology in the forum, I was reminded of this:

I studied Norse Mythology and Religion with a world-renowned professor in the field, who constantly told us there are no sources that permit us to say much, if anything, about the alleged "rune divination". It's a modern hoax.
