Everyone knows a couple of things about font size on the Kindle. 1) You can change it to suit your fancy and 2) the Kindle has six font sizes to choose from, more than the Sony reader. You may also know, if you follow this blog, that my persoanl favorite font size for reading is font size #4.
Thanks to Paul Biba over at Telereads, we now know what font sizes the Kindle numbering system refers to. Come to find out, my eyes find a 14 point font particularly easy and pleasing to read. Here is the complete list:
# 1 = 7pt
# 2 = 9pt
# 3 = 11 pt
# 4 = 14 pt
# 5 = 17 pt
# 6 = 20 pt
Try that 14 pt. It is a beautiful thing.
