It’s not hard to believe that the addition of the “Harry Potter” audiobooks to the Audible library last November has been extremely popular.
Many readers have enjoyed Stephen Fry’s audio recordings of the books – but it seems JKR might have been trying to trip him up!
The popularity of “Harry Potter” shows no signs of slowing down, as listeners voted “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” Audible UK’s Members’ Choice for Audiobook of the Year 2015! It was nominated alongside another J.K. Rowling book.
You can now vote for both “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” and Robert Galbraith’s third “Cormoran Strike” novel, “Career of Evil”, for Audible UK’s Audiobook of the Year 2015!
There’s been one big thing missing from Audible’s library of audio fiction – the “Harry Potter” audiobooks. That is, until now.
In what was more of a reminder to fans than completely new information, “Harry Potter” series author J.K. Rowling took to Twitter last night to address a common pronunciation error when dealing with the characters. It would seem that Lord Voldemort, the series’ primary villain, should be pronounced with a silent ‘T.’ The issue was raised most recently by College of Charleston English major Michael Lucero.
Pottermore has just announced that the “Harry Potter” ebooks will be available through school and public libraries. You will soon be able to borrow the series for several devices!
