A Mumsnetter's guide to Audible
Listening to an audiobook sounds like my cup of tea. What type of device do I need to listen with Audible?
You can listen on iOS, Android, and Windows 10 mobile and tablet devices. You’ll need to download the free Audible app to start accessing the 200,000+ titles available with Audible. Listening is also possible on Kindle and Fire devices as well as certain MP3 players.
I’ve been recommended an audiobook but I don’t really want to sign up for a membership as I think I’ll download just the one. Can I buy Audible audio books as a one-off?
With Audible, it's possible to pay per book, and once you’ve bought it it's yours to keep forever. If you’re for some reason unhappy with the book you can return it and you’ll be issued a refund.
If I’m listening to a book from Audible on my mobile on the train to work, do I need to use my phone's 4G data?
Once you’ve downloaded a book to your Audible app using either WiFi or a 4G connection, it stays on your device so you can pick up where you left off without wasting any data and the option to listen in places with no signal.
My brother loves listening to audiobooks and I want to treat him to an Audible membership. How long are subscriptions and how much do they cost?

Can I cancel my Audible membership if I find I’m not using the audio books often enough?
You can cancel your subscription with Audible, just follow the steps on its cancellation page.
