I always think that it's foolish to be unprepared, to think that nothing can ever go wrong. With the Kindle, you are relying upon Amazon to not lose your books.
Any ebook retailer one purchases books from who keeps copies for you on their servers (Fictionwise, B&N, etc) could lose information on your purchased books. No matter who buy from, back them up yourself.
