I was a die-hard Caecilia person but I have to say I *LOVE* Amasis. I can't go back to using Caecilia now.

Im still using the Kindle Fonts also. I am reasonably happy with it, but for one problem....

The sizes... I really wish there was a size between #2 and #3 fonts.

I have no idea what the sizes are, (I would assume 36,24,12,11,10,9,etc.)

Is there a way to add a new size or change the sizes of the stock fonts? (Assuming the sizes I listed are correct, I want to add a 18)

Thanks,
Johnny

I'm with you on this. Would prefer a size between 3-4 for reading at night. Is there a hack for this? I'm fine with the default font really.

^^^ You can use a font editor to resize the font.

Mine: Amasis, taken from the Sony T1, boldened, enlarged 110% vertically, 107% horizontally.

(It looks better on the kindle than on your monitor.)

I use high logic fontcreator but I wouldn't recommend it just for this alone, unless you don't mind shelling out $50-$80.

Google for some free alternative

I think FontForge can resize fonts and is free.

I've been using Georgia on my Kindle lately.
