Books can feel like therapy during stressful times, and when the world seems chaotic and terrible, getting lost in your favorite novels can be all it takes for things to feel a bit more “normal” again.

The Harry Potter series is a favorite source of comfort for countless people around the world, and many of us have either read it to our kids or have had other people read it to us. Now, to help all of us through the coronavirus pandemic, a number of celebrities have decided to read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and the voice of chapter one is none other than Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe. Radcliffe played the eponymous character in all the Harry Potter movies, so by listening to him reading, you’re being read Harry Potter by Harry Potter!

The idea, called “Harry Potter at Home,” was announced by The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and if you watch the video below, you’ll see some other famous faces who have committed to reading a chapter of the book.

You can watch Radcliffe reading the first chapter here, or if you just want to listen to the audio version while cooking or cleaning, you can check it out on Spotify.

Getting stuck inside the house is getting a bit old, but at least we have one of our favorite actors reading one of our favorite books to us to get us through. Magical!
