Harry Potter fans, rejoice. The series’ original audiobooks are now available for the first time on Audible, the only subscription-based service offering digital audiobooks.

The Jim Dale-read versions are available in the U.S., the Felix von Manteuffel-narrated collection is available in German, and the ones read by Stephen Fry are available in the U.K. and the rest of the world.

“We are thrilled to offer our customers the opportunity to enjoy the Harry Potter audio catalog seamlessly through the Audible service,” said Andy Gaies, Audible Chief Content Officer, in a statement Friday. “J. K. Rowling’s celebrated series is firmly entrenched in the literary pantheon, but when the first Harry Potter novel was released in 1997, smartphones were yet to become the ubiquitous listening devices they are today. Now fans of this trailblazing series have an effortless and affordable way to enjoy them in audio.”

Pottermore will also continue to sell Harry Potter digital audiobooks, but listeners can now download the series at Audible’s website now.
