Audiobooks have huge benefits for people who have difficulty reading books in the usual way, offering the joy of reading and the relaxation and comfort of getting lost in a great story.  If you or a loved one has a passion for books, or is looking for an enjoyable activity, but struggles to read in the usual way, audiobooks are a great alternative!  Click on the logo for more information about how to join.
