At least in the US, the Overdrive app for android let's you rent audiobooks from the library so you can play on your phone. No need to rip or convert.

Yes, and I use it quite a lot. My local library system, however, has a huge collection of CD audiobooks, many of which aren't available (at least in Canada) on Overdrive or Hoopla. I run my script in a window when I'm working on other things so it's trivial to just feed the disk monster. The audiobook then just shows ip in my Dripbox, ready to play.
