I have a pdf text which is hard to read.  It occurred to me to try

installed it with Wine but have not got it working correctly as yet.

Has anybody already done this?

Yes - waste of time (IMNSHO).
Installing Linux *on* a Nook is a good idea though ;-p

Seriously - Calibre is (much) better for general e-book reading and management. Okular is better for plain pdfs.

You might want to check what fonts the pdf requires - it may be it doesn't use embedded fonts - in which case it will pick from your system fonts (which is where the "hard to read" bit may come in).
