Different guest readers will record chapters of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliff, read the first chapter. Sign up on the website to get alerts when new chapters are released.
Every year, AudioFile offers two free audio books weekly over the summer, and the service starts this week. This year they are using the teen version of the Overdrive app, called Sora. It is a product we are looking into using next year for offering eBooks and audiobooks for middle and high school, so this would be a great chance to try it out.
There are two books that are offered every week, and unlike books you borrow through the library, these files remain on your device until you delete them.
