Native Speakers: Which Genre To Use For Audiobooks

I'm currently ripping some of my audio books (Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings) for my portable and being a fan of id3 tags I'd like to do it properly. Which genre do you use for audio books? 'Vocal' or 'Speech'? I'm not sure which is the right one. Thanks.

I would say 'Speech' because 'Vocal' could be a singer as well.

I think that "vocal" is a capella, so for books it should probably be "speech"

I have some CDs with talks, lectures and audio books and ALL are marked as "speech".
