Listening Books - a UK audiobook lending charity
Listening Books is a national UK charity, providing an audiobook lending service for those that find that an illness, disability, learning or mental health condition impacts on their ability to read or hold a book.
Members are able to borrow titles on MP3 CD, which are sent through the post via Royal Mail, or they can choose to borrow and download/stream titles on a computer or portable device such as an Android device or iPhone.
We have over 10,000 titles available for members to borrow, 4500 of which are suitable for children and young adults. We add new titles to the catalogue throughout the year and also record educational titles that support the National Curriculum and which are unavailable elsewhere in the audio format.
Added to that, members can enjoy extra content with their membership, such as The Listening Books Podcast, author interviews and competitions, as well as access thousands of newspapers and magazines in audio at no additional cost.
Membership costs £20 per year, or we offer free memberships for those that couldnt' afford this.
