For my own part, I've decided to save the $17 a month and queue up the digital selections that are available for free through my local library service.
Our local library offers a service where you can download free audio books and listen to them on your phone, tablet, etc. I'd recommend saving your money and supporting your local library.
As for Audible, itself. I truly love the wide selection of books it has to offer. The 1-year return (with no questions asked) policy of any book is a great convenience too. It's wonderful how Audible syncs across many devices so I never have to find where I last dropped off at. I'd encourage anyone to give this program a try. You might end up missing it like I did.
Thanks for a great program, Amazon!
Here are the directions for cancellation because it seems to be a commonly asked question:
1. Sign in to your Audible account
2. Click the part that says "Hi, [Your Name]!" on the top center of the page.
3. In the drop-down menu that appears click "Account Details"
4. The second box from the top is titled "Account Settings" and within that box it says "Cancel my membership". Click that and follow the self-explanatory steps :)
Also, they recommend options that I didn't know where available when I cancelled in the cancellation process: 7.95 for 3 months, and a 9.95 year light reading plan without accumulating credits. You may like those options, but why not offer them before in an open way?
Audible is not loud enough on the new HD7 Fire without connecting to a stereo or headphones in the car, so that was a big disappointment as I wanted to try it out and let both of us enjoy listening on the road. If you have an older car, it just isn't an option.
One thing I learned from experience: If you use the Enhanced format and your book is longer than about 18 hours, the content may become corrupted during download. Switch to Format 4, which will break the book into smaller parts, but will prevent the audio from skipping parts or the narrative from ending prematurely.
Audible has always been willing to restore credit to my account when I return a book, even if it's just because I didn't like it. If there has been an issue, though there seldom is, they have given me a free credit. That's good customer service.
I am taking one star off because at this time Amazon does not let us use gift cards as partial payment for membership renewal.
