Amazing deal, OP. But since there are surely many Audible members on this thread, this is a good place to ask a question we may all be facing soon. I would like to just add all 27 of these books to my Audible account, but as far as I know, once a book is added, there is no way to hide or archive it later down the road. I'm concerned enough that my ~50 existing books are cluttering up my Audible app - and I'm afraid of adding 27 more (many of which I may never actually read). Has anyone found a solution to the problem of Audible clutter?

Apparently it only works with titles you haven't bought yet. As I already had most of these, they don't work for me as far as I can tell. Any advice about how to get around that would be appreciated.

edit: figured it out. If you delete the title from your kindle library, you can rebuy it and get the free audiobook.
or you can search the title at audible.com. the price should shows $0.

As an added bonus, it appears that even after you have "purchased" the audiobook for free, you are able to "Give as a Gift" to anyone else at the same rate of $0. This has to be a loophole int their system, but for the time being, you can apparently gift out additional copies for free to others even if they haven't bought the Kindle book.

What about iPad? I don't see it mentioned. I got all the books on both your lists and tried to download them to my iPad and it said it could not download in safari (the browser for the iPad).

I'd assume that you would need to get the "Kindle" app and the "Audible" app from iTunes to get these on your iPad.
I have had the Kindle app on my iPad forever, and added the audible app because of this thread. It is just an iPhone app, so hopefully they will make a separate or universal one soon. However, I just used my same Kindle login (Amazon login) and there are all the audio books I just bought!

AVCLabs Audiobook Converter. It was like $20 but totally worth it. I do the 24-book annual membership, so I've spent quite a bit of money on their books and I want to be able to protect my investment.

I don't see an Audible app for the iPad..... I found one for my iPhone called audible- Digital audiobook?? Is that the correct one for the iPhone and where did you find the iPad one? Or can you tell me the name please? Next you lost me as to. Sync AAX and what is a DRM in iTunes? Thank you for your advice, information and help! Smilie
AAX is an audiobook format that Audible uses for their highest quality audiobooks (sound-wise), with the CD art, chapter information, and other things built in.

DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and is a way to prevent people from pirating software, music, eBooks, and other digital media. Basically you have to put in your username and password for your audible account into iTunes in order to sync it to your iDevice. If you use the Audible app then it handles the DRM for you.

Also, as someone else mentioned, the iOS app is not universal, it is only an iPhone app.

Finally, I downloaded David Copperfield and the file says it is unabridged. I don't know about Black Beauty, the book didn't interest me. (It looks like I may have bought David Copperfield previously, and that could be why it is unabridged).

Glad to help. I was worried my 2 audiobook deals would get lost in all the posts today.
I'm just really happy that a lot of people have been able to take advantage of these freebies Grin

FYI, I read the details of 2 books - Black Beauty and David Copperfield. BOTH are abridged versions, they are not the complete originals. Not thread crapping. Just an FYI. Buyer beware.
I appreciate that - abridged are something I avoid like the plague.

The Audiobook is unabridged for David Copperfield and Black Beauty (I'm looking at it now in my AudibleManager). Don't know about kindle versions of these books.

In the app store on your iPad, just do a search for "Audible" and the first app under the iPhone category will be: Audible - Digital audiobooks and more
Install that free app and log in. You are good to go!

Yes, that's the one! "Audible" under iPhone apps. It says "compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad".
