    Hey, Ricardo...

    This requires Windows. I don't know how to do it on other platforms without capturing the audio in real-time.

    Audible has gone around and DMCA-threatened folks for posting details on how to do this, so I'll list the pieces... you can figure it out from there. (For the record, I do this to play on a non-DRM-enabled device.)

    dBpoweramp Music Converter + its WMA codec
    Audible's Windows Media Player plugin

    That will get you one big WAV file, at a fraction of playback speed, for each .aa file.

    I to split these into bite-sized chunks with AudioSeparator and then run them through the encoder of my choice. dBpoweramp will encode to MP3 if you buy the encoder plugin. (Everything you need to get to WAV output is free.)

    I've stopped splitting the files lately, because I use the Open Source Rockbox firmware replacement (on a Sansa e200 series), which has divine multiple-bookmark capability and user-scalable seek speed and acceleration rate. I can seek an hour in a matter of seconds.
