Sharing is a great way to stay connected with our family and friends as it makes us more closely. Among all the stuffs, digital items such as audiobooks are popular for sharing because they can be easily sent through the Internet.

When speaking of audiobooks, the largest catalog is from Amazon Audible. If you've got some interesting Audible books, you may like to share them with your friends. But as Audible audiobooks are protected by DRM, some users especially those who are new to Audible may have no idea on how to share them. If that's your case, you can follow this guide to find out the top ways to share Audible books with friends or family, including the official and alternative solutions.

Part 1. The Official Ways to Share Audible Audiobooks to Friends/Family

As the largest downloadable audiobooks seller, Audible currently offers two official solutions for users to share their favorite audiobooks to others, while both have their own advantages and disadvantages.

Method 1. Share Audible Books to Friends through 'Send This Book' Feature

The 'Send this Book' feature provided by Audible allows users to send their favorite audiobooks to others via email, text or message etc. The recipient who receive the item can get a free credit and use it to redeem the book directly if he accepts.

To share an audiobook from Audible, you can either do it via Audible app on mobile devices, or via Audible official web page. Firstly let's take the Audible app for Android as an example to show you how to send Audible audiobooks to your friends step by step.

'Send This Book' with Audible App

Step 1. Simply open the Audible app on Android phone and log in your Audible account.

Step 2. Go to the library of your account and you will see a list of the audiobooks you have purchased and downloaded.

Step 3. Tap the "more" icon next to the book you want to send and choose 'Send this Book' option on the popup menu.

Step 4. Choose a friend from your contacts and share the book directly to him/her.

'Send this Book' on Audible Web Page

Step 1. Visit Audible.com and log into your Audible account.

Step 2. Go to the top menu, select "Library" and then "My Book".

Step 3. Click on any Audible book on your library that you want to share with your friend and then hit 'Send this Book' option.

Step 4. Fulfill the form with an email address (separate them with comma if you want to send to multiple emails) and click the "Send" button.

Note: By using 'Send this Book' , you can share the purchased audiobooks to anyone you know. And it is completely free. However, in this way, only new users of Amazon Audible can get free books and it is limited to only one for each user. If the user is already a registered user a while, then he won't be able to enjoy this privilege again.

Method 2. Share Audible Books to Family via Amazon Household Sharing

To improve the user experience of family members, Amazon has implemented the Family Library Sharing mechanism to let you and your family share the digital media like games, apps, videos, music and books freely and easily. Generally speaking, you need to create the Amazon Household Sharing account before you can manage and share the Audible books and other digital items in your library with other family members of your Amazon Household.

Step 1. Login to the Manage Your Household page of Amazon, then you will see a step-by-step instruction to set up the Amazon Household Sharing account. It allows you to add two adults and four kids at most.

Step 2. Go to the Manage Your Content and Devices page of Audile from where you can choose the digital Audible book files to add to library or remove from it. When it's done, the users in the same Household account can get access to all the shared contents from your family library.

Note: With Family Library Sharing, there is no limit on how many books you can share. But it requires you to have an Amazon Prime account to make the Household Sharing to work. Also, please note that along with the Audible audiobooks, your payment info will also be shared to the people in your Amazon Household account. So it is not recommended to share the Audible files in this way to unfamiliar friends except families.

Part 2. Alternative Way to Share Audible Audiobooks to Anyone without Limit

As we can see from the above mentioned official solutions, both are not perfect yet. That's because Audible audiobooks are protected by DRM, due to which we can not share the files beyond the Audible app, or approved devices or systems. Therefore, to share the Audible audiobooks like other common files without any limitation, you need to get rid of DRM encryption from those Audible books.

In this case, all you'll need is a third party software like TunesKit Audible AA/AAX Converter, the fastest and unique Audible DRM removal tool that can remove DRM from Audible while converting Audible books from AA/AAX to MP3 without losing any quality.
