Unlike many on this list, I generally do not worry about DRM. I do not
intend to either land or give the books away and in the very few
instances that it matters to my usage, I can generally find a way to
negate it. I gather that there is something called Plex that will enable
me to use MP3 books with my Alexa, but I have not figured out how to use
it. So, for the moment, I will stick with Audible.
