What works

Installs fine and will run fine when you have deleted ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/winsxs/manifests/x86_microsoft.vc90.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.30729.4148_none_deadbeef.manifest

I loaded it and registered the Kindle application against my Amazon Account. I have bought a book via the Amazon website and it did sync to my Kindle application.

 I have read books on it and had it download and use the dictionary.

What does not

Searching Amazon Kindle Shop via the application does not work.
