You are added to the first post! Also, now is as good a time as any to tell those who want their name and log to be included in the first post to drop me a line :)

I was totally up for getting in on this, but I can't get the book (it seems to be out of print in Swedish translation, and used copies I can find only with folks who won't ship to the US). Of course, that's possibly to do with my limited ability to navigate sites where I could find it. Doesn't seem to be available as an e-bok at all.

Hmpf.

Alongside this year, I have been mentioning some non-fiction TV Shows from NRK on my log, including "Schröders katt". The others are down the drain on my log.

Anything from NRK you would recommend? It can be science, culture, whatever helps broaden one's vocabulary.

Hej

Jeg har oversat nogle små historier til dansk og optaget lyden. Det er for begyndere, men måske kan nogen herinde bruge dem?
Lad mig høre hvad i synes.
Short Danish stories with audio

(I translated some short "mini stories" to Danish for whomever might want to use them. They're mostly for beginners. I'd like know if you find them useful.) I've got 24 more similar stories in English that I count on translating and recording eventually, and possibly making more, but it depends if Danish learners find them useful.

Jeg hørte på den første historien og syntes den var fantastisk!. De kunne sikkert være veldig nyttige til nybegynnere som studerer dansk. Jeg vil kanskje bruke dem selv for å forbedre min forståelse av muntlig dansk, selv om jeg ikke har tenkt å studere dansk på ordentlig. Du har en bra og behagelig stemme, og tekstene kunne sikkert være brukt "shadowing" òg.

Tusind tak! Ja, jeg havde også selv tænkt at de kunne være gode til shadowing eller noget lignende. Fantastisk at vi kan kommunikere på tværs af norsk og dansk!

Swedish public service recently (?) launched a new tool named Tekster β. You can use it to search through subtitles on SVT Play and then get direct links to the video position where the sentence is said.

I'm glad available data is getting used and I know people use similar tools for movies when making videos but I don't know how useful it's for language learning. Maybe you could use it to hear Swedish words in real life use or find talks about specific subjects within longer videos.
