The wait is almost over for Spanish-speaking Harry Potter fans.
The Spanish-language edition of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth book in the series, will be released worldwide on Thursday.
Millions of readers snapped up Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling when it was published last July, but fans hoping to read it in other languages besides English had to wait.
The Spanish edition, Harry Potter y el Misterio del Principe, will be released worldwide in three slightly different translations- one in Spain, one in Argentina and one in Latin America. Spanish-language readers in the United States will get the non-Argentine Latin American version.
The publication of Misterio del Principe will be celebrated Thursday with a reception at Libreria Lectorum, a Spanish-language bookstore in Manhattan that is a distributor of Spanish titles and a division of Scholastic, Rowling's U.S. publisher.
