Audiobooks for people with print impairments

listening books

Listening Books are a national charity that provides an audiobook library service to children and adults who struggle to read or hold a book due to an illness, disability, mental health issue or learning difficulty such as dyslexia. They currently have funding to offer a number of FREE individual memberships to people living in Berkshire who would find their usual membership fees (ranging from £20 to £45 per year) a barrier to joining the service.

They have a huge range of wonderful fiction and non-fiction titles, including educational titles and study guides (from Key Stage 2 to A Level), from bestselling authors such as Philippa Gregory, James Patterson, MC Beaton, Agatha Christie, Jacqueline Wilson, Roald Dahl, JK Rowling, David Walliams, Terry Pratchett, and many more.

Their audiobooks are available across three easily accessible formats:

  • MP3 CDs sent through the post (all postage is included in the membership)
  • Downloads from our website which can be transferred to a portable device such as a tablet or smart phone to listen on-the-go
  • Online streaming through a Windows PC, Mac or compatible device
