Listening Books - a UK charity providing an audiobook lending service

Listening Books is a national UK charity providing an audiobook lending service for those that have an illness, physical or learning disability or mental health condition that affects reading or holding books.

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 9000 titles available for members to borrow, over 3200 of which are suitable for children and young adults. We add to the catalogue throughout the year (funding permitting) and also record educational titles that support the National Curriculum and which are unavailable elsewhere in the audio format, such as study guides and set texts.
