Well that makes it pretty much worthless right now.
When we all have fuel cell powered laptops and WiFi everywhere, a non-downloadable version will be useful, but not before.
I think that these little experiments into eBooks that libraries and such are doing are great. But that's all they are: experiments. Until companies stop thinking that DRM is good and the content needs to be tied up forever these experiments are doomed to be never more than just "experiments".
