What works

I tested version 2.5.6.9575.  As with John's review, I was able to read with no apparent issues. 

My Library: 

All options for a book in my library worked:  read now, buy now (external link), remove local copy, move to archive and details.  My archive worked similarly. 

I was unable to add local content to my library - I received a 'This file has already been added to your library. (error: 1013)' error.  The files I attempted to add definitely were not in my library either before or after I tried to add them.   A quick web search indicates this may be an issue with the application, not the application running under wine.

Reading now: 

Full screen works, but seems to take ownership of your entire desktop;  you can regain control with some creative clicking and escaping, or alt+tab if those don't work.  Bookmarks work.   Highlights and annotations work. 

Shop:

This was a link to my browser, and worked fine.  I opened the link, bought a new book and was able to download it and start reading right away.

Settings:

Reader settings seem to work, as do account settings.

User guide:

No issues.

What does not

Nothing so far.
