Amazon Prime audiobooks are basically the free Audible books that are available for Prime members. The members get access to a rotating selection of more than 50 audiobooks which they can listen to by streaming online.
However, the Prime members do not have any control over which Audiobooks will be available as Amazon Prime free Audiobooks. The titles are selected by Audible itself and are changed from time to time on a rotation basis.
