I like Vollkorn and Apple Garamond Bold on some readers.

The font I do rather like is Charis SIL. From it, I generated a proper smallcap version. The default line-height is fairly small and the uppercase/lowercase ratio is rather good. The caps are not too big and the lowercase not too small. Plus, I was easily able to modify the font to increase the weight a little to make it look even better with an eink screen.
Could you post a link to your tweaked version?

On my Tablet I use Amasis Modified or Trebuchet before that It was Tahoma. On my old eReader which was before Pearl I used TheSans.
I have tried many fonts but I always go back to those three.
I would love to get a copy of this as well.
