There is a simpler way. Just convert the MP3 to MP4a using any of the
open source converters and then rename the files with a MP4b extension.
The iPod should then set a bookmark when you stop playing and start
again from the correct place. 

If it is just to differentiate between music and speech then tag the
genre as Audiobook
