With a few quick taps, audiobook retailer Audible grants subscribers access to a vast array of titles they can listen to endlessly on-the-go. But more chances to read doesn’t mean you have more time for bad books. 

If you want to clean up your Audible library, consider exchanging the title if it’s eligible. If that’s not enough, deleting the books from your account is an option.

Deleting Audible books from your mobile phone’s app will not remove them from your account, meaning you can redownload them at any time. If you want to completely delete a book from your account, you’ll need to do it on a computer using a web browser.
