Finally, is there a better way to buy audio books -- maybe buying them online and downloading them already in mp3 format? I looked at audible.com, but the cost structure seemed too much compared to what I currently pay for books on CD, and it appears to be a proprietary format as well(?).

Have you asked at your local library lately ? Ours has partnered with Net Library to provide downloads from the Web. I don't do audio books so I'm clueless on formats but it's probably worth checking. Here's an article about it : http://www.oclc.org/news/releases/20055.htm
