Pottermore has announced that they have added new audio book excerpts to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
Pottermore explained that the clippings are available in English (UK & US), German, and Italian. Hopefully they will add more languages in the future for other international audiences.
The audio reading is an excerpt from the audio book edition of the books and is read by the same person that did the whole audio book. They appear every so often in the first book and play automatically once the moment has fully loaded.
From the Insider post:
Pottermore users from the United States are able to hear Jim Dale narrating, German users are able to listen to Felix von Manteuffel, Italian users can hear Giorgio Scaramuzzino and UK users can listen to Stephen Fry’s readings.
There are five total excerpts in the first book that they have included. Pottermore says they will be releasing clues over this week to help you find the audio excerpts. To make it easier for you, we’ve found all five of the excerpts and listed them below. If you are a member of Pottermore you can click on them to listen.
