Not even that. We know access on the net is not 100%. If I want to go read a book and I cannot access it, I would not be happy. Also, I don't always have net access when I read. So I would need a local copy. I don't mind the cloud where the eBooks live until I download them and have a local copy. If I pay for the content, I want the ability to have it on my computer.
