ok firstly what exactly is an abriged version of an audiobook and secondly what good audiobooks are out at the moment?

Podcasts - when you subscribe to them do past episodes get deleted when you sync your pod its just that some of mine have dissapeared since syncing my pod again.

Abridgement or abridgment is a term defined as "shortening" or "condensing" and is most commonly used in reference to the act of reducing a written work, typically a book, into a shorter form.

A written work is mostly abridged for adaptation into an audio book, to make a more convenient companion to an already established work, or as part of censorship of the work.

You have settings for your podcast under your preferences in iTunes I set mine to erase after 10 episodes. Some (Podcast) I archive.

I don't even bother with abridged works.
