April 18, 2015, Saturday afternoon -- Reading J.K. Rowling, translated by Gemma Rovira Ortega

At the Ferry Building amid a goat festival
She is reading Harry Potter y el misterio del principe (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince), the sixth book in the series, by J.K. Rowling, translated by Gemma Rovira Ortega.

She is a human rights lawyer and sometimes has Spanish speaking clients, so she's reading this (and has read the previous five, too) in Spanish to improve her language skills. When she was a child she read these books in English.

Her favorite author is John Steinbeck and her favorite of his books is East of Eden.

Why do you suppose it was translated into the mysterious prince? Halfblood doesn't sound good in spanish?
