What font are people choosing for the KPW?

Just curious what font people are choosing as their principal reading font on the KPW? I suspect that the lighting and contrast might be changing some old preferences. I am still experimenting but am leaning to Helvetica.

I like a serif font, but Baskerville looks too "thin" to me. I've been playing around with different ones, but I think I have settled on Palatino, level 3. It's interesting how much darker Caecilia looks on my Paperwhite vs my K3 Keyboard and K4NT.

I keep going back and forth between Palatino 3 and Caecelia 4. I like Palatino, but 4 is too big for me, and 3 a smidge too small.

Currently I'm using the Caecilia Condensed, size 4. I also really like the Palatino font.

Usually I like Caecilia Condensed the best, but since my current PW has screen issues I need all the thickness I can get so I'm having to use Helvetica. Probably will go back to Caecilia Condensed if replacement PW has good screen.

I have been using Futura 5. A little better at a bigger font size.

Now that I have a good replacement PW I find the best font for my eyes is Caecilia Condensed in size 4.

I like Caecilia Condensed in size 3 best on my Touch because the Touch sizes are a little bigger than the corresponding sizes on the PW.

I have ended up using Caecilia Condesed at size 3. So far it is working for me.

Palatino [4] but as soon as we have a working font hack, I'm going back to Fontin.

Have you given Charis SIL a try?

I've switched to Charis SIL. Fontin is still good. I did create a bold italic font version for Fontin. I can link you a copy if you would like. It may not be perfect, but it is better then not having such.

I'll let you know. I haven't felt that I was missing a bold italic, so I think I'm good. If I change my mind, I'll get back to you. Thanks for the offer.
