Font Size Chart for Kindle

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.

    Jan, the chart is an image embedded in the file, so it can be enlarged as a whole but the text included in the image is not scalable like the surrounding text. Enlarging the chart as a whole is the only way to make the text within the chart larger. Thanks for the question!

    how do you change the font size inside a chart in a Kindle book? Change the font changes the text itself, but the font inside the chart remains the same!
