I am confused and would like clarification if possible. Is an audio book (on PBS) considered just the CD or the cassette tape, or is it the book plus the CD or the cassette tape? In other words, when I buy a book that is listed as an audio book, am I getting the Book plus the tape/CD or just the tape/CD?

Just the CDs or tapes.  Most books take 3 to 12 CDs.  They are fabulous for those of us with long commutes - listening to books is a good way not to stress on traffic!

So, if I have a book and the tape/Cd to go with it, I post each separately? I have children's books with the tape/CD to read along with them.

A book that includes a CD or tape would be listed as either a paperback or hardcover, not an audiobook.  It would be considered a book with accompanying media material.  So children's read-aloud books with a CD would be one credt.

A book that originally included media material has to include the CD or cassette in order to be postable here.

An audio book is a CD or cassette recording of a narrator reading a print book aloud -- that's for two credits.  And generally there's no accompanying print material.

Where on the page to post a book do I find the place to add 'media material'?

You would just send it as a book and include the media.
