A Canticle for Leibowitz on ebookmall

A Canticle for Leibowitz seems to only be available on ebookmall in extra large print, has anybody bought this? Is there a way to get it to a normal print size using Calibre or even the Kindle's built in font size utility?

So far as I know the MOBI version is identical to what was offered in the Kindle Store a year or so ago. See Extra Large Print Kindle ebooks for some screenshots. It is DRM free, and if the smallest size on the Kindle (the normal 4th font size) is too big you should be able to reset it with Calibre.

The publisher gave this one away for free last year for read an ebook week. The font is gigantic, but it is indeed easy to convert with calibre.

BTW, ebook week for this year starts Mar 7. Maybe it will be free again. See ebookweek.com. I can't remember what site was giving it away. It wasn't eBookMall.

I had to read this book for a college English class. Loved it. Haven't read since '85, though.
