It looks like they eliminated several fonts that were on the original Fire. I cannot remember how fonts looked on my original Fire since I got rid of it 6 months ago. But I'm not overly impressed with how fonts look on the Fire HD. It might be because I'm used to my iPad3 with its very crisp rendering and higher resolution. I'll read tonight on the Fire HD and see how it goes. I like the size and weight compared to the iPad3 for reading, but I was already having a bit of eyestrain earlier. I'm beginning to think the font programmers for the Fire HD and PW must have been on acid as they really seem to have shanked the renderings on both.
