Talking book service The Talking Book Service is a free postal service for those who enjoy books but have difficulty seeing or holding them. Titles can be chosen from the talking book catalogue. We have more than 3000 titles available for loan and all books are full version. The cassettes or CDs are sent out to you in pouches. When you have finished with the cassettes/CDs use the pouch to return them to us via your local post box. No stamps are needed – this is a free service.
