Some books are only available for the Cloud Reader. But even if you "downloaded" it for offline reading... there is no "file" you could copy to another device (even if it were drm-free). Offline Cloud Reader books are all part of an encrypted sqlite database on your computer.
Returning it was probably your best option. I don't buy ebooks that aren't offered in a common, easily-manipulateable format.
Always know what you're buying beforehand.
