If B&N goes away (which isn't unthinkable, at this point) the ability to read your books could go away.
That's why I buy in Kindle format. I know they won't ever go away. Amazon's just too well entrenched for that.

And I believe they're the only ones who offer an app for desktop computers in which to read. I don't have a Kindle itself, but there are Kindle apps for iOS devices AND OS X, so that's why I chose that one.
