I mean even when installing a font that's just smaller in size, or larger for easier reading, can it be done on the BeBook?

If it can, then I don't really see any reason why the reader is not flexible enough concearning fonts.
Generally a device is only used between one and 2 users. If each of them has a favorite size for reading books, (say: 14 and 32pt) then you still have one size left to choose from (eg: 24pt).

Normally people who prefer a fonttype, will not often change it (or so I believe), unless the book's formatting is lousy and you need another size for better reading.
Sorry, I didn't look under the hood (so to speak). There are three sizes regular, large, and extra large. I don't know if you can fiddle with the font size of the regular font. Please, this was just a quickie comparison from a non-technical user's perspective... (Personally, I follow the KISS principle (Keep It Simple, Stupid (referring to myself, of course)) with consumer electronics. I use the defaults, unless they are very simple to change. That way, if the device croaks, I don't have to go thru the frustration/learning curve all over again. But each to their own.)
