On the whole, for me, the Glo built-in serif fonts are pretty good. I'm a bit undecided on Kobo Nickel, though. I do like to vary fonts to give each new book a different feel from the previous one.
I've been relatively unsatisfied with the serifed fonts. Kobo Nickel I would like if it had greater x-height; as it stands now it looks rather squashed to me.

My favorite font I've put on so far is definitely Iowan Old Style, which is nicely weighted, sharp, an just generally great looking on the Glo (which is odd, because it's not my favorite font on other types of screens). I've attached a picture showing Iowan Old Style.
