How to Delete a Downloaded Audiobook from the iPhone Audible App

Audiobooks are a convenient alternative to a traditional book if you are often driving or doing something where reading would be difficult. Audible is one of the leading audiobook providers, and they have an iPhone app that allows for books to be downloaded directly to the device. The iPhone is a natural companion for audiobook listeners, as the device can easily be connected to many car, home or office audio systems, allowing you to listen to them in a variety of locations.
