Listening Books

Listening Books

Listening Books is a UK audiobook charity founded in 1959 by Norma Skemp.. It provides a subscription internet streaming and postal audiobook service to anyone who has an illness or disability which makes it difficult to hold a book, turn pages or read in the usual way. Their patron is Stephen Fry.

The charity also campaigns for the widening of the scope of the "articles for the blind" scheme, which provides free postage for items sent to the blind.

The charity runs an annual "Listening Books Award for the Spoken Word" at the Hay Festival. In 2008, this was won by Sandi Toksvig.
