There should be no more downtime….

I switched to a paid plan at my host recently. I hope everything was transferred smoothly and that all things still work as expected. Should you ever run into any problems, be sure to let me know. You can use the form under Contact Us or send an email to: webmaster[at]annas-playground[dot]info.

Within the next few days I hope that I will relaunch this blog with a new and updated theme, it’s long overdue already.

Trying a new tool…

Just wanted to see if and how this works, if it works well it is all very good 🙂 If not I’ll just have to keep doing it the same way as I have done so far.

Seem it works fine 🙂 Gonna try adding a small picture as well


BookCrossing – Sharing your books with the world

Stumbled on a new concept today, BookCrossing, it is a way of making the world into a big library.

It is a rather simple concept really. You sign up for free, registers a book (or books) you own and want others to read. When registering a book you get a unique identity, a BCID, that you should write inside the bookcover, so you can keep track of how the book travels. Then you simply leave the book somewhere it can be found by someone to read. It is wise to leave a note about book crossing and give the Internet address as I guess only few would know what the BCID you have written in the book means otherwise.

Of course there’s always a risk it will take a very long time, before someone picks it up and goes to the site to enter information that they have done so. Also not all do have access to Internet easily. Once you released a book into the wild, there’s very little chance you’ll get it back, but it might be rewarding to read about others that has found “your” book and fun seeing where it has traveled. It could in theory end up in the other end of the world.

As a non member on the site you can add a note if you found a book and where you found it, but won’t be notified where it goes next.

Read more about how it works here:

I’m gonna try this and see if there’s a book or two I want to release into the world 😀 (they’ll be written in Swedish and released in Sweden, will let you all know what books and how they travel, if they do.)

UPDATE: Released books will be listed here

Another Welcome

I would also like to welcome you to our blog. Like Anna said we will be posting about movies music and books here. Now me and Anna do have similar tastes in music but i’m sure that we wont be reviewing all the same music. I do have a variety of tastes in music everything from Westlife to Guns n Roses and quite a bit in between them aswell hehe. Of course everyone does have their own opinions about music books and films but we will tell you what we thought of them. Do feel free to debate our views with us.

So anyways I do hope you enjoy reading our blog posts 😉
