since you would only be reading off it, it will last a long time. Reading doesn't really hurt usb flash drives. Writing, erasing, writing, erasing, etc... is what wears out the drive.

Reading the drive won't cause any extra wear, but data stored on flash memory products will eventually disappear. Flash cells store data as static charges which eventually dissipate, the figures I seen suggest that this can happen after 10 years or more.
