iTunes Store, as well as Audible.com, is one of the most popular online audiobook stores, which have the largest selection of audio books available for purchases and downloads. But as we know, all those iTunes audiobooks come as protected .AA files with DRM, which means you are only allowed to play them on Apple iPod, iPhone, iTunes software.
