Adobe's e-book reader sends your reading logs back to Adobe-in plain text [Updated]
Digital Editions even tracks which pages you've read. It might break a New Jersey Law.

Adobe's Digital Editions e-book and PDF reader-an application used by thousands of libraries to give patrons access to electronic lending libraries-actively logs and reports every document readers add to their local "library" along with what users do with those files. Even worse, the logs are transmitted over the Internet in the clear, allowing anyone who can monitor network traffic (such as the National Security Agency, Internet service providers and cable companies, or others sharing a public Wi-Fi network) to follow along over readers' shoulders.
