Med font size too big, but small font size too small

I'm using Calibre to transfer books over to this reader. But the small font size is a bit small, and the medium is too large. Do I just adjust the 'base font size' in Calibre to make it larger, or is there a better way to do this? Thanks.

I have no idea on how to change font size with calibre (others will tell you more here).
What you can do despite changing font with calibre is to change the font of your book in a wordprocessing program.
If you increase font size in the program you should have a font size big enough for reading once the book is converted to its initial file format.

Thanks! I'll give that a try. Just need it a teeny bit larger.

You're welcome.

Depending on how urgent your matter is, wait a little longer to see if there's someone who can answer you whether or not calibre would be better suited for this

I use calibre and set base font size to 13 for my books, then convert epub to epub (I also have it add the metadata to the start of the book once I have added the description).
