If you have an Alexa enabled speaker, the first audiobook of the Harry Potter saga is available for free. The launch is part of the new Harry Potter at Home initiative, bringing J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World to homes during the COVID-19 lockdown.
To access the audiobook, all you need to say is “Alexa, read Harry Potter Book One”, and immediately be transported to J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. This title will be available for the next few months.
Audible stated “Since we know this global crises continues to impact listeners everywhere, Audible and Pottermore Publishing are pleased to offer this free Alexa listening opportunity in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, and India, with more international territories to be added.”
