(Including public domain books that they only offer in MS Reader.)
I understand that they're expecting users to just buy books and push "install whatever I need to read this" buttons, but I don't have to like it.
And, of course, since they don't mention the existence of DRM at all, there's no way to tell which of their books are and aren't DRM'd.
