As far as I know, there is no way to know up front if a book has DRM or not. Older books seem to be more likely to not have DRM. I guess you could download the sample of the book and see if that has DRM. I haven't tried that personally, but it's something to try.
Actually, I'm pretty sure you can (buy from Sony, that is).
