For bookmarks audio book try ripping to AAC and rename the file extension to .m4b.
I tried it, and it seems to resume the audiobook where it left off. Phew! I hope “A Painted House” is a good book…
Oh yeah, for the record:
A final note for the benefit of RIAA lawyers, and those looking to avoid same: We use this process to copy borrowed audio books from CD to our iPod, so we can listen to books we’ve checked out from the public library. That’s a fair use of the copying capability that is built into iTunes. When we’ve listened to the book, we delete it. Keeping the book, or file swapping it, would be illegal. We don’t do that.
