We've put together some collections of audiobooks you might enjoy borrowing from our library. They're updated regularly, so check back when you can. 

Don't forget, if you are a member you can review the titles you listen to, so once you've listened to a book, give it a star rating.

One for the Weekend

Every Friday a member of Listening Books' staff recommends an audiobook from our library to take you through the weekend. This Friday, Listening Books volunteer Sarah recommends Middle England by Jonathan Coe. She says:

 

'I have read most of Jonathan Coe’s books and he really manages to get to the heart of issues concerning politics and society and captures the moment so wonderfully. Some of these characters originate from his earlier books but you don’t need to have read them to enjoy this novel which somehow manages to cover the unfolding drama of Brexit with plenty of humour. The narrator does a brilliant job of bringing the characters alive and makes this read hugely enjoyable.'
