Normal People Audiobook

Give your library members the opportunity to listen to Normal People by Sally Rooney
and get the Core Collection for free.


With the final episode of Sally Rooney's Normal People to air on the BBC today, make sure that it is available for your members to listen to - only on the RBdigital app.

Exclusive to RBdigital, the eAudio edition of Normal People is experiencing high checkout numbers. Due to our popular multi-cap lending model, which provides 100 simultaneous loans per copy, your borrowers will not experience the frustration of holds or waiting whilst the title becomes available.

We appreciate that you may not want to add eAudiobooks to your RBdigital service for just one title. Therefore along with the purchase of Normal People for £41.40 (saving 10% off list price), you will also get our Core Audiobook Collection of more than 1,000 popular titles with uncapped simultaneous loans at no extra cost for your borrowers to enjoy. 


A stunning novel about the transformative power of relationships from the author of Conversations with Friends.

Winner of the Costa Novel Award 2018
Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2018
Longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2019

Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. The similarities end there; they are from very different worlds. When they both earn places at Trinity College in Dublin, a connection that has grown between them lasts long into the following years. This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life.




We are also aware that as part of their COVID-19 measures some library authorities are changing or relaxing the rules they apply to the issuing of temporary library cards: if your library service does not do so already, and you wish to make your RBdigital services available to holders of temporary library cards, then please let us know immediately so that we can make the necessary changes to enable this.


To order Normal People, plus our Core Collection simply contact your sales representative or click here to email customer services.
