Testing mobi

I am working on getting my ebook into mobi format but I don't have a Kindle or another ebook reader than can handle mobi. I only have an Iriver.

Is there any reliable software that will show a mobi book on my Mac as it would appear in an ebook reader?

If you have an Intel Mac running 10.5 or better, Kindle Previewer for Mac will simulate what your book will look like on a variety of Kindle models. I've found it's very close to my K2, with only the occasional quirk.

Unfortunately, none of the official Mobipocket software will run on a Mac via Wine.
