There are occasions, which I've stated, when I don't want to display italic at all.

As to Bookerly, I don't like it. It's what I term a 'bobbly' font. I'm not refering to the serifs here, but to the ends of letters: there are some fonts, Bookerly is one, where the letters end with a small ball, giving a 'bobbly' appearance. These fonts distract me. Of the built-in kindle fonts, I prefer Caecilia to Bookerly because it has less noticeable 'bobbles'.
