Heh, I seem to have figured it out.

1) a kepub (nickel font) showing both bold and italic
2) a pdf not zoomed in
3) 11% brightness (what I read with at night)
4) 50% brightness
5) 100% brightness

If there is anything else you want to see let me know.

I prefer this library list over the one with thumbnails because it allows more of the title to be seen.

Nice pics, Mostly Math! Can you show a text page of a side loaded epub?

I like the way the series info is under the title on your epubs....are those sideloaded books?

Could you clarify this for me? Does the Aura have library views as follows: rows of thumbnails only, list of titles with words only, list of titles with thumbnails (as the Mini, Touch, and Glo have.)

Just went back and saw my question answered. Nice to have all three options.

1) Library with side loaded epub (from calibre) I notice the series info isn't there
2) side loaded epub purchased from KOBO
3) side loaded epup purchased from AMAZON

PS: I'm having fun (and learning how to use my phone) so if anyone else wants any other pictures let me know.

I agree with the OP that kobo rocks. I once had problems downloading a book. Even at 11pm their chatservice was on line and helped me to solve the problem. At that time, after half an hour of trying different things, he couldn't find a solution to my problem. He sent my case to a collegue, who fixed it next morning. Very friendly customer service and for me, that's one of the most important things. I don't even care their software is buggy from time to time.

Calibre can send the series info for sideloaded books if you want. You just need to select the "Set series information" box in the KoboTouch plugin, set metadata management to automatic, and plug the device back in to connect with Calibre a second time after the book has been sent to the device.
