Are you looking for a way to gift audiobooks for a friend or relative? Listening Books could be the perfect present for any bookworm! At just £20 for our online membership, you can give that special someone access to our vast collection of audiobooks and a whole year of listening pleasure.

An online membership provides instant access for your friend or relative to access our library of audiobooks, available 24 hours a day!

Plus, new for 2021, at no additional cost, members also receive access to thousands of newspapers and magazines from all over the world through our partner service PressReader.

Our postal service is perfect for those friends or relatives who are less internet savvy and prefer their audiobooks by post.  For £35 per year, your giftee can choose their own books from our MP3 CD collection. If they are unable to pick their own titles, our experienced membership team can choose books for them.  We send out four at a time directly to them, and when they have finished they return them using the freepost envelope provided.  There are no late fees, and they can borrow as many books as they like throughout the year.

I have been using Listening Books for over a year now. I absolutely love it. It has transformed children in my class and their opinion on books and reading. I can't applaud your work enough.

If you are worried that it might be too much for an elderly friend or relative but you know they’d love the books, then we can help as much as they need. We are happy to talk them through setting up the app over the phone or we can select titles on CD based on their favourite genres or authors.

Contact us to enquire about about a gift membership on 0207 407 9417 or at support@listening-books.org.uk.  You can also apply online here
