I'M having a bit of a problem with audio books on Linux. I buy my books from audible.com but since they don't support Linux it's just one more thing keeping me from fully leaving Windows. There audio formats are in .aax. Their books play fine in iTunes and on my iPod. Each book as multiple tracks with it's self as opposed to an audio CD where each file is a track. And it has a neat resume feature as well. It works so well infact that I'M guessing that apple build .aax support into iTunes for audible.com. I'M looking for a good auio book seller with a good audio book format that has some sort of stop/start ability to it like audible's .aax.
