"I haven't been able to get my iPod to list my books by album rather than by track either.

However, if you change how the books are sorted, your iPod will list the track names grouped by book. Go to 'get info' and click on the sorting tab. Type the book title into the ""sort album"" field.

If you do this for all of your audiobooks, the track names will no longer be sorted by track number, but instead, all tracks for each book will be grouped together."

My solution was to create a separate playlist for each of the book and sync and access them from iPod by playlists. This way I don't have to change anything as my iTunes library is synced with many devices and changing media kinds, merging files, removing track info will break other sync profiles.
