Organize Your Audio Books with iTunes

To organize your audio book collection:

  1. If you haven’t done so already, add your audio book files to iTunes. Do this by going to your Music folder > iTunes > iTunes Media > Automatically Add to iTunes. Now drag and drop your MP3 files into this folder.

    Note: if your files aren’t properly tagged, be sure to do one book at a time to avoid confusion.
