    Make sure that they are in your iTunes Books library. Import them if necessary

    Then connect the iPod to your computer and go to the Music pane for the iPod in iTunes and make sure that sync audio books box is checked. Then sync.

    Presently audio books are not redownloadable for free and that is why they ae not in the Purchases section.

    If iTunes still carries the books, they ARE available to download from the cloud, either to the computer or your iPod Touch directly.

    Open iBooks on the device and tap on 'purchased'. 

    download.

     

    iTunes does not garentee to carry a book forever, a serious flaw.  If you can't find the book in iTunes anymore and didn't keep it on the computer, or backed up, it may be gone.

     

    To add audio books to the iPod;

    you have to check the box at the bottom section of the Books screen that says, "sync audio books"

    lizdance40, audio books are NOT available for redownload. Books with words areavailable for redownload.

    See:
