Can kindle 3 remember specific font sizes for books?

Hi,

I just bought a Kindle wifi, my first one. My wife and I share the kindle, but she likes her fonts large and I like mine small. So far my experience with the device is that font size is a global setting and affects all books.

Is there a setting somewhere for each book to have its own font size? Can I do it in Calibre during conversion?

As far as I know there is not PER BOOK setting.

I don't think Calibre offers any simple way but I may be wrong. I believe you may have to kind of disassemble the book by converting to another format and then edit font data. Check in the Calibre subforum - lots of talent hangs out there.

If you find a solution, you'll have to go on sharing.
Perhaps you should stop looking and use this as an excuse to get a second Kindle of your own!
Tubemonkey almost has me convinced the the Special Offer Kindle would be a good choice (and virtually free if you use many of the offers....)
