And that's OK, but you then need to accept some of the consequences this brings in the display of e-books.

I heard a recommendation that for text to be nicely readable, lines of text should contain approximately 60 characters -- not more, and not much less. I think my preferred themes in Moon+ Pro contain between 40-50 characters per line of text, so I'm pretty close to that recommended ideal. In your screenshots, you have -- a rough guess -- only about 30 characters or so per line of text, which again indicates a rather non-standard setup for a tablet screen. (One would be more likely to expect to see such short lines of text on a small mobile-phone screen.)
I have a Nexus 7 too. You should see how few words per line on my phone! I used to prefer full justify for my books but with a font size small enough that it was formatted ok it was just too small to read. My vision would be double after reading from the strain. So I did have to get used to the left justify, but it's better than double vision.
