Default How to keep sonos from playing audiobooks

I love my Sonos,

First post in the forum:

I like to put my sonos on Shuffle and just pick tracks at random throughout my itunes library. Unfortunately I can't seem to get my audiobooks shut off in itunes so I will get a random chapter of audiobook playing when I just want music to play. Is there a way to get Sonos to not select audiobooks? I can't seem to "See" the audiobook files in the Itunes library to somehow move them.

Its snowy here

minneapolis... snowed in basically...

anyway, in Itunes - if you highlight a song or group of songs, and right click and select "get info" from there select options and media kind, select audio book - from this same spot you can check "skip when shuffling"

as far as sonos goes, im not sure, im brand new, and i just shuffle inside playlists.

Okay, I'm not an iTunes guy, so I don't know iTunes functionality.

Here are some possible solutions

1) Create an playlist with all songs -> play playlist
2) Create two shares, one for music, one for the rest .... go to directory-view on SONOS and select music share
