First trying to read for any length of time on a monitor absolutely played havoc with my eyes. Ever since I had Lasik and hit my late forties my eyes have been very sensitive to back lit screens.
I experimented with a few of the themes first trying some dark backgrounds with various levels of blue or gray font colors, but I finally settled on using the Nature theme (I was surprised that this theme worked best for me) with the Shadow option checked and fonts that were scaled large enough for comfortable viewing. I also dropped the brightness down to 1%, but now that Moon+Reader allows levels below the minimum I usually read with the Nexus set to -12%.
Additionally this isn't for reading in the dark (although I can do that, but drop the brightness further) I usually have a light on behind me or to the side that helps adjust my pupils and minimize any eye strain.
Good luck in finding something that works for you.
