Since I strip DRM from all my e-books and tend to edit them anyway (I don't like space between paragraphs), I never connect my e-reader to Wi-Fi. It hasn't been a challenge. In fact, I've learned I'd be willing to buy an e-reader that had no Wi-Fi capability at all.

Something to think about in all this: the javascript causing the uproar tracks amount of time spent reading. The usefulness of that is what you make of it.

But Amazon, Kobo, B&N or whoever already has a history of what books you have purchased and what books you have searched for, which seems like it would be of much more value.
