Well I use Player Pro and I know there's a setting that let's you choose or restrict which directories the player will look for music. This option is definitely helpful as before I started taking advantage of it, sound bytes from downloaded games would appear in my list of songs.

Use some sort of file browser, browse to mp3 file. Place a period at the very beginning of the file name using the rename feature of the file browser.

You can download hideitpro from play store and hide the audiobooks that way.
