Question Sharing Audible.com files

Is there any way to share Audible.com book files like you would an actual book? It seems the members name is some how encoded with the file. Just curious.

Sure, you could lend them your iPod just like you would an actual book.

In fact, it would be JUST LIKE lending them an actual book. You would never get it back!

I emailed Audible this question. It's my supervisor who I want to share books with. They said if we share names and passwords with each other, it was fine. Go figure.

You can apparently have up to two Audible accounts active on a single copy of iTunes/single iPod, so this should be a legitimate use in principle.

Well, they emailed me again that it was against policy to share passwords. Oh well.

I actually share my account with my brother. We both split the cost of the two books per month and we each get 1 book. We both use a username and password we both decided on and each have an ipod at our two different computers. Haven't run into any problems yet other than having to have the accounts reset when my brother got his new computer.
