Earlier in 2016, RNIB launched an exciting partnership with publishing powerhouse HarperCollins. Thanks to this partnership, the Talking Books Library will receive every audio recording of HarperCollins' new titles, as well as their entire backlist of more than 2,000 titles. In December, we have already released some amazing titles simultaneously from RNIB Library on the very same day they became available in stores.
RNIB's Talking Books library contains over 25,000 books, with more titles added regularly in a wide variety of genres - from crime and thrillers, to romance and classics, to biographies of the biggest stars in the world, as well as some of the most significant political and historical figures.
The three fantastic books below are the latest additions to the list of RNIB and HarperCollins simultaneous Talking Books releases, added to our library on their publication day!
