This is not a drill! I repeat, this. Is. Not. A. Drill. Daniel Radcliffe recorded himself reading the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone. But that’s not all! Other celebs will be reading other chapters in the book, and it’s completely free. The audio is available on Spotify but you can also enjoy it together with video on Wizarding World – the official Harry Potter fan club.
Despite loving the books and most of the movies, I am not a true Potterhead. In fact, I had to create an account just to make sure that these readings are, in fact, free. All they needed from me was my email address, a password involving letters, numbers, special characters and Parseltongue. Just kidding! And yes, I stole their joke.
Harry Potter At Home
This is basically an initiative to help entertain those of us stuck at home! There will be a different celebrity reading each of 17 chapters of this awesome book. Although I can probably recite it by heart, I’d love to give it a listen!
“Excitingly, Daniel Radcliffe, Stephen Fry, David Beckham, Dakota Fanning, Claudia Kim, Noma Dumezweni, and Eddie Redmayne are amongst the cast of narrators, with more surprises and special appearances from across the Wizarding World and beyond to come. Each will be reading different sections of this iconic book – with its themes of family, friendship, courage and overcoming adversity – to families around the world.”Wizarding World

The Harry Potter phenomenon is pretty crazy. This book touched so many hearts and grew into more than just a story. If you’re into re-reading the series, check out this beautiful set of books on Amazon. They even have a pricey but beautiful illustrated edition!
