          If you are talking about audio books from the public library or audible.com, usually not. This is because they are in WMA format and the Nook will not recognize it.

           

          If you're downloading it from elsewhere, be sure it is mp3 format and then just sideload it into the music folder under My Files. You can make a separate folder for the book under the music folder so it does not get mixed in with other music titles.

                I sideloaded my music into one file and my audio book into another file.  The music will play one song after the other when I created a playlist but the  book requires me to "start" each section myself.

                The tech folks told me "they are working on this" problem.  Any suggestions?  I tried to create a playlist from the book sections but that was not possible.  I

                I am very disappointed as I am a big fan of audio books :-(

                Wma or aac files in addition to mp3. You can convert other types to work.
