    So, I have several audiobooks on disc that I have ripped to my computer. I would like an app that allows me to play my own audiobooks (preferably for free). Can I do that with Audible's android app, or is there another I could use?

    I don't need a lot of functionality. Just the ability to bookmark where I am, and move from one "disc" to the next seemlessly.

    Umm, just put the mp3's onto your phone's sd card. You dont need an app to play mp3's, the phone already has a music player built in.

    Will the built-in player remember where I leave off if I stop listening and come back to it later? Sorry if these are dumb questions. Got my first android phone this weekend, and I'm still getting the hang of things.

    Some do, some don't. If not, there are always players in the market you could try.

    I use winamp. Once in a while it forgets where it left off but not very often. It even remembers through mount / dismount of the SD cards.
    <edit>
    BTW, most players use the mp3 tags, not the filename to order them. So if you want the book parts to play in order, use "title" tags which are in order like "Deja Dead 01-04", "Deja Dead 02-04" etc. Don't put the number at the beginning of the title or all the book parts will be mixed up - "01-04 Deja Dead", "01-23 Executive Orders", etc.

    I use the free "MortPlayer Audio Books" app, available on the Android Market. It has a nice user interface, with good features like bookmarks, skip-back-6 seconds, skip-forward-10-seconds, go to a specific time, etc. It player MP3s, WMAs, etc. It also makes a nice music plays. It's by the same developer who makes the Mortplayer (which is a nice, popular music player) so just be sure to download the "audio book" version.
