Make Audiobooks Yours Again

I am not a huge audiobook person. I can only do one thing at a time, and often, audiobooks (at least fiction) are a …. not great choice while I’m driving.

But I understand their appeal, and there’s been times that a good audiobook is exactly what I need to get some ideas or fiction into my brain.

But I hate – and I mean hate – being locked into a particular player / ebook reader.

Which is where I recommend OpenAudible.

This software can download, convert, and organize all of your Audible books for Mac, Windows and Linux. It’s shareware (USD$20) but you can do most things without registering, and it’s well worth it.

For example, I picked up Polysecure: Attachment, Trauma and Consensual Nonmonogamy recently. I’m really really enjoying it, but want to listen to it as well as read it in text. So I snagged the Audible version, and with the help of OpenAudible, I was able to download the audiobook (that I had purchased), convert it to MP3, and can listen to it on the old-ass single-use MP3 player I keep around for while I’m mowing the lawn or doing housework.
