Audible has a new offer that Harry Potter fans will not want to pass up. Just last month, a new audiobook edition of The Tales of Beedle the Bard was announced, and now Audible members can download and listen to the new audiobook for free! You just need to have an active Audible membership to be eligible for this offer, though you'll want to make sure you add it to your account while you can as this deal won't last forever.

The Tales of Beedle The Bard is a collection of stories originally mentioned in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and later written by J.K. Rowling. Audible members can download the audiobook for free — no coupon, code, or magic spell required.

This free audiobook of The Tales of Beedle the Bard won't use up your credit for the month, so you don't have to worry about whether it's the right pick for your library or not. However, if you're not an Audible member, you'll need to sign up for a free trial before you can take advantage of this deal. Each month you're subscribed, you'll receive a credit which can be used to buy any audiobook on the site.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard was a crucial piece of the puzzle in the final book of the Harry Potter series. Later written in full by J.K. Rowling and released in 2008, this is the first time it's being presented in this fashion. This new audiobook features performances from various castmembers from the Harry Potter film series.

You'll hear actors such as Jason Isaacs who played Lucius Malfoy, Jude Law as Dumbledore from the Fantastic Beasts prequels, and Evanna Lynch who played Luna reading wizarding stories such as The Fountain of Fair Fortune, The Wizard and the Hopping Pot, and the iconic The Tale of the Three Brothers which led Harry and his friends on a journey for three deathly hallows. The full audiobook lasts just over 90 minutes.

Audible is a fantastic service in part because it gives you the ability to listen anywhere you go. You can use your computer to listen, download the Audible app on your phone, or even use your tablet.
