    So Apple Books is not a great user experience. For some bizarre reason Apple decided to bury purchased audiobooks three sub menus deep. Why?? Audiobooks deserve a dedicated app...

    Audible does this right. All My purchased audiobooks show up on screen when I open the app. Tap on a title to download. Easy peasy.

    I’d like to use Apple software exclusively, but iTunes seems so outdated. End rant.

    Welcome to iMore!! Hope you enjoy the forums & post often.

    As an avid reader, I’d honestly never expect Apple to get the Books app right. I do agree that it leaves much to be desired, but it’s not their focus!! Most people that read a lot & listen to audiobooks reach for a kindle or kobo, and listen to audiobooks on those e-readers or in a specialized app such as Audible. If you’d like to provide feedback to Apple, the link is below.
