There are a couple of ways of handling bookmarks. The main thing to
keep in mind is that a bookmark marks your place in a folder, not a
file. So put each audiobook in its own folder.

If you want each folder to always keep your place, turn Bookmark on
Stop and Load Last Bookmark on. These settings are in Bookmark
Options, which I believe is in general. Another possibility, if you
don't want all your folders to always start where you left off, is to
turn on the setting for creating a list of recent bookmarks. You can
then choose the bookmark you want from the Recent Bookmarks list.
