I've been reviewing the costs while paying attention to the discount that resellers expect - and that's made me take another look at this. At 9.5pt (still with reasonable line spacing) I can get down under 400 pages and have a book with a more reasonable retail price. It looks quite readable in my tests here, about the same as some of our mass-market paperbacks. I'd prefer slightly bigger, but I would also like to actually make a buck or two off the sale while keeping a reasonable price for the reader.
I get complaints that the text is to small at 10 point from readers. So I do not think I would go to 9.5 personally.
