Okay, I logged out of the iTunes store, turned of iTunes match, then logged back into the iTunes store, after which I could then see the previously loaded audio books under "Books". I then turned on iTunes match. Not sure why this corrected the situation though.

I had the same problem. I purchased an audible book and wanted to download it to my imac. When I did this, I could never find my downloaded book. I called Audible and spoke to a representative for about 2 hours. We tried everything she knew. Finally, she told me to call apple. I didn't want to be on the phone for another 2 hours so I followed the instructions above. It worked!
When I downloaded the book to my pc, it worked perfectly and opened in itunes.
I think this is another way of Apple trying to prevent any purchases from anyone but itunes.
Thanks for your information. It took hours but it worked!

Worked for me, too! Thanks! I'm on 10.8.2, and the problem didn't emerge until this morning. But as soon as I turned off Match, I got the aa book to play. In fact, the old books were playing fine. It was just the new import that wasn't working.

I found it very curous that after a book from Audible was downloaded and added to iTunes it still did not appear in the Audiobooks listing. My solution was to search my iTunes library for the title, which was there in "books" and when I clicked on it--lo and behold it popped up in the Audiobooks. Looks like it is being mis-directed by iTunes into "books" but the media will tell it to move it if you find it. This is too much like black magic.

Ok so drag the files into itunes and they will go into the music list.
Select the files you want>right click and go down to GET INFO>go over to the SORT drop-down> SET the file type to AUDIOBOOK and hit "return". They all convert to audiobooks and pop themselves over to the audiobook section.

After calling Audible.com my workaround was to use SAFARI as the browser. I had been informed that Chrome was creating some issues in the download. With Safari, I downloaded to my DL folder and then manually clicked and dragged the audible file to the Library in iTunes. From there I then moved it manually to the iPod device. Job finally done after 3 hours friggin around on Chrome. In another life/world/dimension Audible files will download directly to itunes on Chrome. However, I'm always the first to point the finger at myself...user error! In the meanwhile I MUST say Audible support was excellent!!!
