Amazon makes spending money easy…perhaps too easy, and before you know it you’ve spent hundreds to thousands of dollars buying books, music and videos on demand. However, all of this content is locked in the Amazon system, so even though you bought it, in reality Amazon owns it and they dictate if / when you get access. Besides the obvious privacy issues, this isn’t such a bad thing per say, until either A) you lose Internet and access to all your content, or B) Amazon decides you did something wrong and shuts your account down. I’ve seen it happen, and there isn’t much you can do about it.  So, it might not be a bad idea to take the time to rip your digital content from Amazon’s cold hard grasp. It’s not that hard to do.

Audible (easy):

  1. Download OpenAudio
  2. Go into your Audible through the browser > Library > Download
  3. Open OpenAudio > Import >  choose book you downloaded in step 2
    • Actions > Convert to mp3

Kindle (windows instructions – involved):

  1. Download and install calibre
  2. Download DeDRM Plugin
    1. Open calibre’s Preferences dialog.  Click on the “Plugins” button.  Next, click on the button, “Load plugin from file”.  Navigate to the unzipped DeDRM_tools folder and, in the folder “DeDRM_calibre_plugin”, find the file “”.  Click to select the file and select “Open”.  Click “Yes” in the “Are you sure?” dialog box. Click the “OK” button in the “Success” dialog box.
  3. Install kindleforpc…1.17 (if you have a newer version installed, uninstall it and remove all downloaded books…calibre cannot break encryption after 1.17 so you’ll need to start from scratch).
  4. Log into the kindle app to activate
  5. Go to Tools > Options and disable Automatic Updates
  6. Download a book
  7. Open Calibre and select Add books
    1. Browse to kindlw d/l directory and choose a book
  8. Convert Books
    1. Choose your format, like EPUB or PDF

How to Delete Books from Audible Library

The Audible audiobook service lets you purchase books and add them to your Audible library. These books can then be accessed through a variety of different apps and on multiple device, making it easy for you to listen to the titles you own. But when you want to remove books that you have already listened to, you may be wondering how to remove Audible books from an iPhone.

Audiobooks are a convenient alternative to a traditional book if you are often driving or doing something where reading would be difficult. Audible is one of the leading audiobook providers, and they have an iPhone app that allows for books to be downloaded directly to the device. The iPhone is a natural companion for audiobook listeners, as the device can easily be connected to many car, home, or office audio systems, allowing you to listen to them in a variety of locations.

Please note: This method only works when your Audible account is linked to your Amazon account.

If your Audible account is not associated with Amazon account, (most of us use seperate, right?), you should contact Audible customer center to solve the problem. I've tried to contact them and I was told to exchange my purchased titles to another audible books. If neither of the suggested solution we like, how to delete audible from cloud? No, Audible don't allow us to delete files permanently by ourselves!

Though I'm not so satisfied with their answer but I could understand that, maybe they just worry if sometimes we want to listen to the previously purchased audiobook but we've moved it out then we should buy the title again. To avoid this problem or more like this, I will recommend use this tool, Epubor Audible Converter, to back up purchased audible books, as it helps us convert audible aa/aax to common MP3.

Still, it was somehow inconvenient to sit down for tea without Seryoga. I went to the door to the room, but already halfway I realized that Sery was not there. From the bathroom, I could hear the familiar sound of a pouring shower, and I went back to the kitchen, stomped in front. Of the box of cookies, and took a bite.
