I like the way the letters look in Georgia, but the numbers are helter-skelter.

I like the letters and numbers in Charis SIL, but highlighting in my reading app (Marvin 3) does not work well with Charis.

So, my font of choice is Times New Roman ... it meets all my font needs.

There's a free Light weight, which requires bolding for e-ink.

Because the font does not register with me, when reading, I rarely change the font in books.

I prefer the following typefaces when writing my stories:
  • Times New Roman/Thorndale: Main body
  • Calibri: Headings and subheadings
  • Courier New: Displayed text (such as on computer screens)
  • Comic Sans/Script: Hand written items (like notes)

When it comes to general writing, I prefer to go with a common typeface like Times New Roman. I used to avoid it, but I'm growing to like the way it looks.

I strongly agree about the numbers in Georgia. While the letters look good, the old-style numbers make it a no-go for me. It is one of the things that pushed me to going back to Times New Roman.

If they do allow the option, most fonts work for me, if not, Charis SIL Modified, or Clear Sans are my fonts of choice.
I highly suggest you stop using Charis SIL Modified. It's now obsolete. I've made a newer version using a newer version of Charis SIL. I added more weight and kerning. Plus, it doesn't have hinting (not needed on eInk). The name of the new version is ChareInk. See the link below to the thread with the font attached.

But you then no longer have all the other versions. Not worth it. Plus, the cost is $126. Way too expensive.
