Changing Font Family

Is there a way to change the font on the new Sony Reader PRS 350 and 650? I don't like their default font because it looks cluttered. I have a kobo and I love reading on it more then the Sony. I read faster on my Kobo then my PRS-650 because the font is easier on the eyes.

Yes! It's pretty easy.

Even better, one of the MR members - jswinden - has summarized those instructions into a very nice PDF.

It's at the very bottom of the first (long) post on this thread.

I don't get why the Sony engineers left out a simple feature like changeable fonts option that most eBooks out there already support. It should be standard instead of leaving up to the end users to hack. I'm going to write to Sony and hopefully the next update we will see this feature.

You were much more eloquent about it than I was.
