Most people suggest using the Amazon Kindle Cloud Reader.

No idea what it is since I don't use it - here's a handy and rather pretty blog explaining it :) Good luck

Kindle for Windows can be run using WINE (a Windows compatibility layer for Linux). It is rated by WINEHQ as platinum, which means everything works.

You can install WINE from your software repository or you can get a more recent copy from WINHQ itself.

The procedure is really quite simple. Install WINE and then install Kindle for PC using Wine and then it should just work.

www.winehq.org have support documents and a databae of application compatibility, if you need more information.
