In case you have Booksamillion books purchased but not yet downloaded

I got an email from them Booksamillion saying that some of my books need to be downloaded before they expire on November 20. I normally download any books right away after purchase and sure enough, when I signed in and checked my download library on their site, I found that the books that have an upcoming expiration date were all books I purchased and downloaded several years ago.

However, if you think you might have purchased any books from Booksamillion that you haven't downloaded you may want to log in and check your download library in case any of them are about to expire.

In case anyone needs it, here's their Help page about downloading your soon-to-expire books:

Wow. This is just the kind of thing that has always made me weary of buying ebooks. I buy a lot of them from amazon. But if this happens with BAM there is nothing that says it can’t happen at amazon as well.
Out of paranoia I always immediately download a purchased amazon ebook, remove the drm and store it safely away just because of crap like this.

It's not paranoia. It's common sense.

The "expiring" books were only about half a dozen out of all the books I had purchased from them. I didn't see anything about whether the other books will also "expire" at some point.
