netbooks and the libraries

I've been taking ebooks out of the Middlesex library netbook, and have
been annoyed that I'm not able to read them on my Nokia 810, but have to
read them on the laptop.  Adobe Digital Editions, which is the program
you have to use, does run under Wine, but has usability issues even for
a situation where reading on a laptop makes sense, and I do a lot of my
reading in bed, where it doesn't.

Has anyone used a netbook with Adobe Digital Editions, and does it work
for reading in bed?

I've blogged about my experience with the library books at:

I suppose it can be said I'm an absent-minded driver.  It's true that
I've driven through a number of red lights on occasion, but on the
other hand I've stopped at a lot of green ones but never gotten credit
for it.
