Good afternoon.
I have been with audible now for a number of years but I am thinking of stopping membership as I am also listening to books via my county library and would try and use this more if I didn't have audible.
I have something like 70 books. These are always saved with audible and I only download one book at a time onto my iPhone.
Obviously if I cancel I do not want to lose the audiobooks as I have bought them. I presume if I cancel my membership that would be the end of my cloud storage with audible.
I wondered what people thought was the best and easiest way of saving them. I am guessing it will be quite time consuming so want to try and find the best way before I start.
Although I have an iPad and iPhone we also have a PC with iTunes on it.
Any ideas would be appreciated thanks.

It depends on what you mean by Membership. You don't have to be a subscriber to buy audio books from Audible. You only need an Audible account. Provided you simply cancel your subscription but don't close your account you'll retain access to the books.

if you cancel your membership, the books will still be available for you to download again in the future via your audible account. I've done this in the past (I had a year when I cancelled, I've subsequently re-joined). During the time my subscription was cancelled, I could still access all the old books.
Hope this helps.

Just to say it's really just like your Amazon account. You don't need a subscription for it. You don;t need to buy anything. As long as you keep your account they will keep your stuff for you. It's that simple.

Sorry I didn't get back quicker the day got far too busy. That is great news. I totally misunderstood what would happen if I cancelled my subscription. I wrongly presumed this would close my account. Great news. I envisaged having to put the lot onto discs which I imagine would have taken forever. Thank you so much.

I have all my Audible books downloaded on to my laptop onto my Audible Page Manager - that way I can listen to them off-line on the laptop and/or I can download any of them on to an mp3 player or my Kindle Keyboard or Kindle Touch e-readers while off-line.

With all the books on my laptop as my router can be tempermental at times I have access to all my Audible books if the router is not performing when I need it to.

My Kindle Fires now show a cloud list of all the Audible audio books and I have different Audible books fully downloaded on those. It is so easy to delete an Audible book off a Kindle Fire's "on device list" and download a different one in its place. The Kindle Fires download an Audible book direct to the Kindle Fire from my library on the Audible website all in one download whereas the same Audible books are downloaded in two or three parts to my Audible Page Manager on my laptop.

If my laptop breaks down and has to be replaced I simply download for free from Audible website a new version of Audible Page Manager on to the new laptop and redownload all my books (a big chore) on to my new laptop.

So I have all the Audible books safe in my library on the Audible website, plus listening access off-line to them ALL on my Audible Page Manager if my internet is not working. Downloading access off-line from Audible Page Manager too.

As in the case of e-books from Amazon they are in my cloud for life.

I've been an audible member on and off for years,you can join/leave as often as you like and your books will always be there for you. In fact afew months after i 1st cancelled they offered me a half price offer to rejoin so i did and then cancelled again. Latter about 9 months another offer 99p for a book,again i cancelled straight after. If you see a book you like rejoin and pay 7.99 then just leave till you see somthing else.Thats the beauty of audible.
