I have a pdf text which is hard to read. It occurred to me to try
installing the Nook reader to see if it would improve visibility. The

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).
