How to purchase a Listening Books membership as a gift

Are you looking for a way to gift audiobooks for a friend or relative? Listening Books could be the perfect present for any bookworm! From only £20 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 a library 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?

If you want to apply for a gift membership to Listening Books audiobook library, just contact us

Let us know what type of membership you would like (online or postal) and we'll talk you through the rest of the process. 

Audiobooks are very useful to me on the days I don't have enough energy to pick up a book and read. Being in hospital has been very draining so this is useful during future visits to help me keep up with my English Literature A Level. It's also nice to fill in time when I'm bored but too exhausted to do anything.

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
