Quid est? Et cur?

Embedded image permalinkOkay, just saw this over on Netgalley.

I taught Latin for four years. Twenty odd years ago. I might be able to plow my way through this. Have at various points in my life owned Winnie Ille PuQuomodo Invidiosulus Nomine Grinchus Christi Natalem Abrogaverit and Alicia in Terra Mirabili.

Let's think of this in terms of a Venn Diagram. Is there ANYONE in the middle with me?

And yet, I do kind of want a copy...


  1. I can't wait to read this. Have you read Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis?

    I think this is going to be fun. I have requested a copy over Netgalley and I hope the approve it.

  3. Wow. This is interesting. I never went beyond 8th grade Latin, so I think I'll take a pass, but for kids studying Latin, this would be a lot of fun. Thanks for telling me about it.

  4. I saw a photo of the Pope thumbing through a copy--so you never know!

  5. Ahahaha! My son has the first Harry Potter in Latin, but he's never studied Latin and neither have I!
