I havent’ tried the Audio books function yet - but plan to.
Is there some particular vendor / application that’s required for this player - OR - can I go to any online book store and download it - just like a standard mp3 player. I noticed today - there are various options from some sites I’ve seen.
How do audio books generally work with this player?
You can play mp3 type of audiobooks like playing music, but you won’t be able to bookmark where you left and have to restart/fastforward everthing time. The only way to get the proper audiobook function (bookmark, etc), you will have to subcribe to Audible.com service and purchase the audiobooks there. Those audiobook are all DRM’ed and required you to activate it and the player (in this case, Fuze) in order to listen to it. There is no limits to how many players you put the book onto under the same account, but you can only burn it to CD three times (IIRC). You can think of it like music service, sort of.
 btw, Fuze also support Overdrive, which is an ebooks borrowing system used by many libraries. You borrow eBook from the library by downloading it into your player, and the book will automatically expired after certain period of time. It is actually based on DRM’ed WMA technology.
