Question Reducing line spacing

Is there a way to reduce the line spacing (double spaced, it seems!) in books that come with the Kobo, and with books bought from the Whitcoulls site? (or Kobo site. Assuming books look the same).

I would much prefer it if I could get more words per page, and less page turns.

I'm really hoping that the next firmware upgrade will allow a flexible setting for line spacing.

Calibre has an option that takes out lines.

+1 on that ... I'm a fast reader and even with the font set to small, the double-spacing creates a lot of button pushes. I love reading the Calibre subscriptions since most of them come through with single-spacing, and I can change font size after deleting the css file. More content per page would be a blessing!

Stuff bought from Whitcoulls will be DRMed, so you'll either have to put up with it, or strip the DRM.
