Woke up excited to listen to Shadows in Flight from Audible, only to find just an abridged version. Did I just wake up too early?

I know - What the heck? Why even put out an abridged version? If you do, don't release it before the unabridged version. I almost bought it - luckily the one star review clued me in. Amazon has the unabridged version, but is not Audible owned by Amazon?

"Note from Audible: This is the Unabridged Version"

Please note that this version of Shadows in Flight is in fact the unabridged version. The length is 6 hrs, 23 mins. We apologize for the confusion and are working to update the description to read "Unabridged". The change should take effect shortly. If you have already purchased this audio please know that it is the unabridged version. Many thanks,

Emily, Audible Editor

I'm disappointed Shadows In Flight isn't available as a NOOKbook. I don't live near a bookstore and was really hoping to read it immediately, but I just checked Barnes and Noble and the Nook format isn't available.

from another thread:
From Orson Scott Card's Facebook page:

" There's no ebook for a year, but there'll be an "enhanced ebook" for Kindle and Nook within a couple of weeks, fully illustrated by Nick Greenwood (and deftly abridged by Jake Black.)."

I don't know why the enhanced e-book is abridged. that kinda sucks.
