How to purchase a Listening Books membership as a gift

Are you looking for an audiobook gift for a friend or relative? Listening Books could be the perfect present for any bookworm!  From only £20 per year you can give that special someone access to our vast collection of audiobooks and a lifetime of listening pleasure.

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

Our postal service is perfect for those friends or relatives who are less internet savvy and prefer their audiobooks by post.  Your giftee can choose their own books from our MP3 CD collection. Or 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.

How do I apply?

  • Step 1 – fill out the online application
  • Step 2 - once the email arrives in your inbox, either print it off, or forward it to your friend. If you want the membership sent directly to the recipient, let us know.

We have a wide range of titles in our collection

Our Librarians are here to help every step of the way...

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 

The tablets are brilliant! We have been loaning one to a family who does not have access to the internet and we have been able to regularly upload new stories on for the teenager and her whole family to listen to together. This has been such a positive influence for the whole family and has been an additional way that the family can make memories together. Also, we are going to be loaning another tablet to a young girl who is blind. She already loves listening to audiobooks but this will open up the vast amount of storytellers that she can access. Thank you again for all the support of the tablet. They are such a valuable resource.
