Is there a Calibre for audio books? Plus possibly a mobile app for listening to those audio books?

I do like Audible, but there has to be better way. w/o DRM and such.

1. Download Audiobooks from Audible directly
2. Choose "Format 4" (upper right)
3. Convert: ffmpeg -i downloaded_file.aa -codec copy output.mp3
4. Remove Tags: id3v2 -D output.mp3
5. Enjoy

@octotherp Thanks! I will try that today.

@octotherp Why is step 3 so simple? Is there no actual DRM on the files? Interesting.
