There is no "main" iTunes library. One shows music/audio, another shows TV shows, another shows podcast . . . Your iTunes is working properly when it shows the book only under Audiobooks.
Library segregation leads to one big inconvenience: You have to choose which library to search in. A TV show you dragged over might have gone under Movies because of the forgetful ID tag. A podcast you drag over might show up in Music because it's missing the proprietary podcast flag. So finding things is a pain when you have to search two or more libraries. I wish the gray label "Library" were selectable so that we could choose that to perform a global search.
I'm having a similar problem with downloaded audiobooks going into the "Music" library instead of the "audiobook" one - it'd be great to stop getting parts of novels playing when I play on shuffle. I used to make a "only music" playlist but that's a pain to update/ manage with new imports and such.
I have the same request.
Your is completely the opposite.
I would like to see the category of audiobooks in the Library instead of having to make them into a playlist.
You don;t have to. There is already a category of Audiobooks.
iTunes prefs -> General.
Under Show: tick Audiobooks.
This will put the Audiobooks category under Library in the Source pane (left side) of iTunes.
