A nice font collection for your e-book reader (Part II)

Back in January, I wrote a post about the fonts I used on my e-ink device (Kindle Paperwhite).

Since then, my preferences have changed and below you will find the fonts I currently use:

If you use a Kindle, just unpack the zip and put the fonts to “fonts” directory.


  1. Baskerville is already included in kindle devices. However, I got it from the Android .apk, and I added a download link above, so that users of other e-ink devices can test it too.

  2. Lexend Deca was explicitly designed to improve reading speeds. It’s a very interesting font and you should definitely give it a try.

  3. Didact Gothic is very similar (but thinner) to Lexend Deca.
