The addition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone to Audible Plus is part of the 25th anniversary celebration of its original release in the U.S. and Canada and coincides with “Starting Harry Potter,” the annual invitation for new, young listeners to begin their Harry Potter journey. Narrated by Jim Dale, the Sorcerer’s Stone audiobook is among the most listened-to titles of all time on Audible. Over one billion hours of the Harry Potter stories have been listened to on Audible globally since the audiobooks were first made available there seven years ago.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is a cultural touchstone, and I’m honored my performance helped make the audiobook a gateway to family listening for the past twenty-five years. Having the audiobook accessible to more families through Audible is the perfect celebration of this anniversary. My hope is that many more generations to come will find the same listening magic, decade after decade,” said narrator Jim Dale.

Other beloved Wizarding World titles available on Audible include The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Harry Potter: A History of Magic, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Quidditch Through the Ages
