Then you can purchase your books from Amazon and read on the ipad. Amazon.com currently have a much larger library of books for sale than the iBookstore anyway. Plus with the kindle reader for Mac/PC you can read your purchase on your Mac/PC as well.Mac OS X (10.6.6)

As long as you have a US iTunes account you can still buy books from the store regardless of which country you are in physically. Just watch out for the fact that when in Singapore your browser or iTunes may automatically default to the local store based on where it believes you are. You can then re login to the US store.
And while you are there, search for Profitable Leadership. 2 new free ibooks you amy enjoy.

Apple publishes the list of stores which have paid books here:
Have you tried Nook, Kobo, or Googlbooks?
Same problem here. But Kobo etc are all proprietary. When I buy a book, I want it to be available anywhere, anytime. Without the need for proprietary software or anything. With Kobo, I don't even know where the actual file is! It's encrypted and saved somewhere mysterious.

Then I think you need to buy a print version. If you have complaints with the way the ebook market is currently structured, best to convey them directly to the publishers.
