Will the Shuffle work with audio books?

My wife got a first hand look at a Shuffle this weekend and absolutely loved it. She listens to alot of audible books on our iPod now.

I was gonna go buy one for her, but then I realized that it doesn't look possible to scroll through half the book if she's already listened to the first half.

Does anybody know if it's possible to do that? Or you have to listen to the book all the way through? If it's not possible, I don't guess we'll be buying one.

Check out this article:

It seems the iPod shuffle can play audiobooks, but is a bit limited. It cannot use the chapter bookmarks, but it does automatically bookmark the place where you stopped listening. Also, there's no problem fast forwarding/rewinding the audiobooks.

I haven't tried using audiobooks on my shuffle yet, but I absolutely love the shuffle and can highly recommend it!
