Anyone know if manually syncing audiobooks that I've ripped from CD's is possible when using iTM for music and podcasts?  I have an extensive collection of audiobooks and saved lectures (categorized as audiobooks).  I don't want to save them as "music" because I lose the ability to play as 1.5x speed.  Additionally, I put them in smart playlists so I can "keep track" what I've listened to.  (With 30GB and hundreds of days of lectures, I keed to keep track...)  I'd like to keep access to these playlists as well.

 

In short, I want iTM and manual syncing for those media that iTM won't.

    For some clarification...

     

    I know I can navigate to the Audiobooks portion in iOS and select my audiobook there, HOWEVER...  I have a playlist for everyday of my Bible Reading Plan that mixes various books and chapters for each day.  (Usually 2 OT chapters, 1 Psalm, 1 Proverb, 2 NT Chapters each day.)  To manually navigate through each entry of each artist in "Audiobooks" would be very distracting as I listen to these playlists as I drive to work.

     

    Hence...  I want playlist support of manually synced iTM non-eligible media, and I don't have it!  Anyone have a workaround?
