Calibre reader - screen rotation

I would like to use my netbook as a reader and Calibre runs great on the computer but I need to rotate the built-in reader so that it will work in portrait mode.
I have looked but cant find any built in option to do this - am I missing something?

Is there another "Netbook" reader that works in portrait mode that can read epub files?

Thanks

The reader does not rotate

Does your Netbook have a Video option to Rotate (the desktop) 90?
Calibre's reader will re-size to fill the screen

I second this idea. I setup my daughter's netbook to rotate 90 degrees on a couple keystrokes. I think I used EeeRotate, but there should be other ways too.
