Your audiobook questions answered here

Yes! You can continue enjoying the most recent title you’ve listened to on Alexa by saying "Alexa, read my audiobook." If you’d like to try out something else in your library, try asking Alexa to read a specific audiobook. For example, "Alexa, read The Bell Jar."
Whether you're looking to amp up your listening speed ("Alexa, read faster"), set a sleep timer ("Alexa, stop reading in 12 minutes"), or purchase a new audiobook ("Alexa, buy Doctor Sleep"), there's no shortage of voice commands to make the most of Audible for Alexa. Find a list of all voice features here.
To link your Audible account to Alexa and get started with totally hands-free home listening, first ensure that your Alexa device is connected to your Amazon account and that your username for Audible and Amazon are the same. If you need help merging separate Audible and Amazon accounts, please consult this helpful guide.
There are a number of issues that might cause some difficulties with Alexa, but luckily, it’s likely an easy fix. First, make sure that your Alexa device is plugged in, turned on, and unmuted—the light on top should be glowing blue. Then, consult this guide for further steps. If you’ve tried these troubleshooting options and still are encountering difficulties, contact us for support.
