You would probably be shocked then to realize that most folks don't back up their files, frequent admonitions to the contrary. Heck , the way many folks use their computers, the most secure file they have is the one in the cloud.
This though is a standard objection to ANY cloud based business model and is duly noted. In a subscription model, you dont own the books , any more than you own the music if you subscribe to Pandora. THere may be an option to buy a copy you can download, save etc. but you would pay a premium for a DRM free copy - $24.99 for a bestseller, say.
