I believe I have found my perfect Kindle 2 font and it is the Georgia 2.

I'm adding screen shots instead of scans to show that the font sizes are the same on both Kindles (3). I made sure to use alt+shift+3 on both so that the line spacing is the same. I used the same letter from Jeff Bezos (though they have different dates, it's the same letter.

The new Georgia font is much larger than the factory installed font. I normally read at 4 and I can now drop down to 2 (which is nearly equal to the factory installed 3).

1 = control kindle font at 3
2 = Georgia font at 3
3 = Georgia font at 2

Edit: After going back to my regular book, I've decided reading at 3 with line spacing of 4 or 5 works better for me.
