Audio books

I have been having trouble finding audio books on iTunes. What I mean is that under nonfiction, there are five pages of results, but iTunes carries many more nonfiction audio books than are listed on these pages. The same is true for all categories. There are many audio books that are not listed in any category but can only be found by searching for that particular title.

What I'd like to know is if there is a comprehensive list of all the audio books available on iTunes and how I might access that page.

Thank you

Try Audible for your audiobooks, I like their monthly rates and their store is much easier to find stuff in.

For iTunes Store try the View/Column Browser, although that's not a real great option since it only lists by Author/Narrator.

You would have been better off starting a new thread in the appropriate sections here.

Anyways, have you authorized your Audible account in iTunes? If I remember right you just need to play a book in iTunes to be prompted for your user name and password.

Also check your sync settings, audiobooks are still covered by the music sync settings so any custom sync settings here may block the audiobook. Maybe Apple will be nice someday and add some sync settings specifically for audiobooks.
