Put on your Extendable Ears, Potterheads! The first four chapters of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone stream for free on Alexa this month, so you can listen to Jim Dale narrate Harry's earliest adventures, right up to the moment that Hagrid whisks him away to his magical new life.
This month marks the 20th publication anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, which hit bookstores in the U.K. — as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone — on June 26, 1997. To commemorate this auspicious occasion, Harry Potter fans can participate in Pottermore's Wizarding World Book Club: an official, worldwide re-read of the Harry Potter series. The Harry Potter book club kicked off on Monday, with the real festivities set to begin — When else? — on June 26.
Until then, you can listen to the first four chapters of the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Audible version on Alexa. Just say, "Alexa, read about The Boy Who Lived," and you'll be treated to over an hour and a half of Dale's iconic narration. This stream is only available for a limited time, but you can download the first Harry Potter book for free with a 30-day Audible trial.
