Question What are the nicest looking fonts you think would look good on the koreader?

Any suggestions? Maybe Amazon's bookerly?

I like Tex Gyre Pagella (URW Palladio L/Palatino).

Having been raised on Kindles, I've kind of grown fond of Serif Slabs, so, yeah, I tend to stick to Bookerly.

I sometimes used Museo before Bookerly came out.

Otherwise, on high-dpi devices, I'm sometimes going with very serif-fy stuff like Crimson Text/Gentium Book/Palatino or a nice Garamond (i.e., one from Adobe).

Also Literata, Literata Book, PT Serif and Source Serif Pro are well rendered in KOReader.

Huh. I'd missed the open-source release of Literata, so I wasn't aware of the Book version. (I ended up being less than enthused with the Print variant ripped from Android. The Book one appears to use some tighter metrics so I guess we'll see .).

Not a fan, but it's better than the Droid fonts anyway.

(Not like any of them are bad or anything.)

I downloaded my Literata from the following. I'm not sure if this is the best place to get it from.

Yup, that's the open-source release w/ a "Literata Book" variant I was talking about.

Before that, I was ripping it out of my Android devices via adb or something, I don't even remember xD, but that one is/was the "Print" version: "Literata".

Oh yeah, i quite like Libertine. Pity it has a lot fewer glyphs of FreeSerif, let alone Noto Serif. But I suppose in theory we could always opt to default to e.g. Libertine as long as we have a Noto fallback.

Can we find "literata book" of e-book friendly in any way? I downloaded it from this site: https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/literata-book
And from this link:https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/d.../literata-book

It pretty much never was intended for eInk, as it was commissioned by Google for Play Books and modern Android devices.

Which font do you recommend to use in e-ink readers? I'm new to this area. Thanks in advance

I use Bitter on my Cervantes (https://www.huertatipografica.com/en/fonts/bitter-ht). Alregreya from the same foundry is also up my alley (https://www.huertatipografica.com/en...legreya-ht-pro), and Amazon's Bookerly looks good too.
