Why You Should LISTEN to the Harry Potter Books



Today, as I was going through my Google Reader, catching up on some blogs, I came across this post on Squeaky Books, and I just HAD to share it.  I know that I've talked about my love of the Harry Potter Audiobooks until I was blue in the face, but there are still some of you who doubt me.  I can't believe I haven't seen this video before, but I LOVE IT!!  Not only is Jim Dale amazing, but after finishing the Harry Potter movies, hearing him read from the first book, just seriously makes me want to cry.  So....sit back, and let Jim Dale take you back to the wonderful world of Harry Potter.  Then go buy, check-out, rent, borrow or steal the audiobooks.  (Ok, don't really steal them, unless it's from your mother, like I did.)




I seriously can't quit smiling!!  I love his voice, his characters, and everything about his reading.  Now go read Enna's post and see how she's almost as obsessed with these audiobooks as I am!

  1. I'm not a big fan of audiobooks, mostly just because a lot of the earlier readers didn't read them in a way I liked. But the Harry Potter audiobooks are masterpieces. Jim Dale is the best audiobook reader ever. Seriously.

  3. I'm reading the Harry Potter series for the first time. I've also been listening to it on audio. I LOVE Jim Dale. I don't think they could have gotten a better person to read these books.

  8. I love these audio books! The way he says Harry's name in Hermione's voice has become a family joke. They are so much fun and add a whole other level to the Harry Potter experience.

  9. I'm so glad I was encouraged to listen instead of just reading them when I was first introduced to Harry Potter this spring. I know that it will become a series that I listen to yearly!
