I might be missing something from your question, but iTunes already has a folder built in for ‘audiobooks’ and it just called ‘Books.’
‘Books’ should show in your item list under ‘Library.’ If it’s not showing, you can add it by going to Edit/Preferences and then look at the General tab and make sure ‘Books’ is checked.
Then you should be able to rt-click on your audiobook and use ‘Get Info’ to look at the book’s profile. In ‘Get Info’ there will be an ‘Options’ tab. On the Options tab, use the dropdown for ‘Media Kind’ and choose ‘Audiobook’ and that will tell iTunes that this is an audiobook file and it will move the listing into ‘Books.’
You may need to do this too on your iPod for the audiobooks that are already there. Then the audiobooks will also show on the iPod under the Audiobooks menu item.

I have my books in the audiobook folder in my iPod but they show each book and every chapter in it. Some books have many chapters, so this is not a practical way to view the books.
I have then in playlists as recommednded on this website.
But I want to move all of those playlists to one main folder. This will spearate my books from my music.

I’m sorry I can’t help you with the way you’re doing your audiobooks.
I love audiobooks and have done them by the hundreds over the years. But I gave up on using them the way most or many people may be. I decided that chapters in the autiobook were completely unimportant and the multitude of files in the book caused a huge mess and organizational nightmare.
I only use joined .mp3 files for audiobooks and use the settings in iTunes to make them act as audiobooks (albeit, without the chapters).
It's so much simpler, but unfortunately you can't alwasys get books in that format.
