10.4: Finding Audible files with Spotlight System 10.4
This is clearly a bug, but it might be good to know...

If you do a Spotlight search for Audible files (audiobooks from Audible.com, with the .aa extension), they do not show up in the Music category -- Tiger considers them to be documents. So if you get lots of hits and wonder why you don't see them in the Music category, check the Documents category instead.

Audiobooks purchased from iTunes, however (with the .m4b extension) show up in the Music category (as do podcasts), which makes more sense, since they are audio programs.

I wouldn't call this a bug. I certainly don't think of audio books as music.

Nor would I. Books ain't music. I certainly wouldn't want to listen to a book. No drums. :)
