How to Add Audible.com Audiobooks to iTunes

Apple's iTunes application makes it easy to directly download audiobooks purchased from Audible.com and install them on your iPod. With this function, you can automatically update your music player with books purchased from the partner site once you have configured your iTunes application to do so. Setting up the procedure takes a few minutes the first time, but, afterward, files transfer automatically.
