SmartLists are by far the easiest solution. But there are downsides, beyond the shuffle conundrum listed above.
You might expect an iPhone menu for AudioBooks to contain AudioBooks you have ripped, for example.
You might not want your audiobooks populating the music library, nor want them showing up in Coverflow.
And the AAC conversion at least would be necessary, for the sped up listening option.
Similarly, it would be nice if video podcasts were separate from audio podcasts, but the built in smart playlists don't do the job.
Is there an automator option or applescript (tiger) for the above process of converting a ripped audiobook to something iTunes, and pods and phones, will automatically recognize as audiobooks?

I have a brand new question. I am buying iPod Nanos to use in my first grade classroom. One thing they will be used for is listening to childrens' books. Many I will download from iTunes and audible books. Some I will record. Does anyone know about how much time of spoken word equals a gig? Also, some of the books have multiple voices so I will want them in stero. What is the kbps bit rate I should use for book download to get the best sound but not waste space?
Thanks for your help.

The highest quality audible.com is 32 kbps stereo which roughly translates to 14 mb per
