A question about OGG files.

I would like to start converting MP3's to OGG. I'd like some advice on
comparative bit rates. If I rip a 160 kbs 16 khz stereo MP3 from a CD, how
much smaller could I rip the file to OGG while maintaining the same quality?
How about an 32 kbs 8 kHz mono for my audio books?

Thanks...rocker
