Grouping series audiobooks on iOS

In prep for the upcoming post-thanksgiving road trip I’ve been loading my phone up with audiobooks. The thing of it is, we like series books, and they are always such a mess in the main book list. Why can’t I group them up like discs in an album? Turns out you can, if you know exactly how to tag them in iTunes.

For the sake of this example I’m going to tag The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It’s a radio series of 5 different stories. Tagging is pretty simple once you know what to do.

When all is said and done, you’ll end up with a base list that has each series, and then within the series you’ll see each book as a “part”.
