If you have already purchased the Audible membership and want to keep this membership, you can enjoy more than you can imagine, such as Audible channels and one free credit for exchanging the Audible books every month.

A good news from Audible is that Audible members now can select 2 of 6 featured Audible Originals every month, in addition to 1 audiobook since September 2018. But what is the Audible original? Audible Originals are exclusive audiobooks recorded by famous storytellers around the worlds. The audiobooks cover different areas, such as theater, journalism, literature and so on. You can check the 6 featured Audible Original list of this month to get your own two Audible Originals now.

All the audiobooks, free or non-free, downloaded from the Audible.com are all protected by Audible DRM. They are encoded in .aa or .aax audio formats which can only be played at some selected players. This is really annoying when we want to listen to Audible books in the car or when our mp3 players are not compatible with Audible audiobooks. You can use Epubor Audible Converter to convert AA, AAX audiobooks to mp3 or M4B. Why not give it a try to liberate your Audible books now?
