Anyone here use Audible.com audiobooks? How do I convert to MP3?

I want to burn a couple audiobooks from Audible I have to MP3 for a pretty long drive coming up, but am quite unsure how to convert them. Yes, I know I can use the audible manager to burn to CD, but that is in raw format, so I would only get 80 minutes per CD instead of a couple books on 1 CD in MP3 form. Yes, I could burn to CD, then rip the CD as MP3, but that would take a day in itself, and am looking for an easy way to do it. Thanks.

There is no easy way. AFAIK, they purposely do this to thwart piracy.

last i looked (18 months ago) you had to play the file using the audible player and record the data stream (with totalrecorder) as an mp3 in realtime... a royal pain in the ass for 27 hour books.

Thanks, but that won't help with my conversion. The audible manager converts the audible file for burning to CD, but does not save it, so I can't just use one of those programs .
