The apps page at WINE HQ has a good run down:

What works
Reading a Secure ebook.
Reading a non-Secure ebook.

What does not
Importing new ebooks into the library (see below for how to add them manually).
Connecting to any online bookstore.

What was not tested
Importing/reading non-prc ebooks (books in something other than the mobipocket format).
I'd be curious to know how you go.

Seems to run fine under Wine now

Using Ubuntu 11.04, and the version of Wine currently in the repository, I just installed the Mobipocket Reader and it appears to run fine. No special setup needed, and it imported a short example Mobipocket document without problems.

I will post an updated report in WineHQ when I am sure about the stability.
