Does iPod support popular audiobook formats such as MP3 and WMA? I' hear that the iPod is not so great for audiobook support

    Not sure which iPod you're asking about but almost all formats (including MP3 and MP4) can easily be loaded with files for audiobooks from iTunes. I've added books from CDs and from downloads from my library, the Great Courses company, and Audible without any trouble at all.

    The only problem will be if you have a Windows format file like WMA and try to listen to it on a Mac. I use Parallels so listen there but such files must be converted to load into your Mac iTunes. Most audiobooks can be downloaded in either Mac or Windows format so the solution is just to redownload for your Mac.
