They are planning the first one to come out in Gidhlig next year!!

HARRY SET TO WORK HIS MAGIC ON GAELIC

Mike Merritt

GAELIC campaigners are hoping Harry Potter can work a little magic on their language.

Publishers of the boy wizard books have announced the first in the series is to be translated into Gaelic.

Campaigners believe it will boost the language's popularity among children.

Donald Martin, head of Gaelic development agency Comunn na Gaidhlig said: 'We see Harry Potter as an important part of popularising Gaelic.

'It will take the language into the realms of topicality. Most of the Gaelic books are about history and culture.

Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone will go on sale next year as Harry Potter Agus Clach An Fheallsanaich.

Campaigners - including pupils of Glasgow Gaelic School - had lobbied publishers Bloomsbury for some time for a translation of JK Rowling's book, which was made into a film starring Daniel Radcliffe as Harry.

Donald Martin added: 'We supplied a list of translators to Bloomsbury and it is good to hear that at last the first book is coming out. We are delighted.'

'I think one of the problems is that it is a big job and that some of the words will not translate into Gaelic.'

Author JK Rowling's agents told campaigners of the decision just days before she announced the sixth in the series - Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - would be published on July 16. The books have already been translated into nearly 50 languages, including Irish Gaelic.

I have yet as well to get all the books for Harry Potter but I have seen all the movies so far and await anxiously for the next movie!! w00t2.gif

I think with them publishing the new Harry Potter book in gaelic it would be awesome not only for children but adults as well, it'll be a must buy for everyone! happy.gif

biggrin.gif Had to add in my favs...OF COURSE...Diana is at top of my list but I've also really enjoyed The Clan Of The Cave Bear series by Jean Auel. They are very lengthly books but wonderfully written. She uses a lot of factual information as well as her own imagination but the stories all revolve around a man and a woman as they make their way through life. Not so different from any story today but set in a very different time...any way...I have read the series at least 2 all the way through...and am waiting for her next book to be released....ahh...waiting for these authors....patience amy...patience (I can hear my Mom's voice now...)

I'm waiting for the next Jean Auel book in the Earth's Children series too. I love them -- her research is amazing. I think this next one is supposed to be the end of the story, but there's an awful lot to wrap up -- I wouldn't be surprised if she went into another book.

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card. My favorite book of all time.

May those who love us love us
And those who don't love us
May God turn their hearts,
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

Enemies of the Permanent Things - Observations of Abnormity in Literature and Politics.... By Russell Kirk


--------------------
"True conformity to the dictates of nature requires reverence for the past and solicitude for the future. 'Nature' is not simply the sensation of the passing moment; it is eternal, though we evanescent men experience only a fragment of it. We have no right to imperil the happiness of posterity by impudently tinkering with the heritage of humanity."


"Every right is married to a duty, every freedom owns a corresponding responsibility. There cannot be genuine freedom unless there exists also genuine order in the moral realm and in the social realm."

anything by Jane Austen, though my favorites are "Emma" and "Mansfield Park." LOTR, of course, and the Harry Potter series. I read a series of Susan Cooper books based in the Arthurian legend over and over when I was younger, but I think my sister has them now. Can't remember what they were called-need to look that up.


--------------------
warm heart, warm hearth
bring me to thee-
out of the world's bluster and bite.
i'll hold my children
in a place soft and light,
and welcome the wanderer
that knocks at my door.
