What works


Opening the application

Splash screen

List books

Download a book (this didn't work until I first installed msvcp90 via winetrick's "vcrun2008")

Read a book (MOBI, TOPAZ, all seem to work)

Annotations, highlighting, etc all seem to work 

What does not

What was not tested

I think I hit most everything. Looks quite usable! :)
