How to Remove or Hide Audible Audiobooks on Kindle & Other Devices



Audiobooks are an excellent tool for people who want to listen to books rather than read them. It is also a great alternative if you don’t want to miss your novels but don’t have the time to sit down and read the book. You can always listen to the audiobook version while doing something else.

Kindle e-readers and other mobile devices compatible with the Amazon Audible app enable you to download, save, and manage Audible audiobooks in your library collection. It adds diversity to your ebooks and gives you more options when you need something.

However, when you feel that some of your Audible audio books are taking up so much space on your home screen, you can choose to remove or hide them. In some cases, you may have downloaded audiobooks that are not worth your time. You can also delete and get rid of them from your library any time you want.

If you want to add them back to your device, go to your Audible account via browser and have them downloaded to your app or Kindle device.

However, if you really want to permanently delete the Audible audiobook from your Amazon account, you will have to do that on the Amazon website. Click here to get started.
