A Short Side Note
The easiest way to transfer audible books to another is to have a merged account. That’s how I can keep all my purchased audiobooks in one place. I just want to make my life less complex.
Now, you may be an eBook reader like me mainly, but I do like to listen to some cool audiobooks every now and then. I can’t listen to audiobooks from Audible from my Kindle device because the login information of Audible and Amazon is not the same.
I find that frustrating when I see there is an audiobook version of my favorite eBook but I can’t take the advantage of it. So, I personally like to have combined information just to take this single advantage.
I also love to take the full advantage of the Audible family sharing feature that I can get only if I combine my Audible account with my Amazon account.
You may have your own reasons just like I mentioned above, but I strongly recommend keeping all your content under singlehood. It just makes life a lot simpler.
