Connects to Fictionwise.com and downloads ebooks.
What does not
Library does not display books correctly.
Downloader must be told to "open" file rather than "save" file for Mobipocket Reader to see it and open it.
Crashed after 5 min of reading.
What was not tested
Opening a book after closing Mobipocket Reader (since the Library's messed up, it could be hard to find the file) because Mobipocket Reader crashed and would not open again.
Couldn't get this to work in "regular" Wine. I had to install IEs4Linux, then download and install the Reader via IE6. This put the Reader in the .ies4linux folder tree rather than the normal Wine installation. Everything worked from that install, but the Reader crashed after 5 minutes of reading and would not restart.
