Changing the font on a Kindle

In order to change the font on a Kindle Paperwhite, all that you need to do is the following;

  1. Go to the book that you are reading.
  2. Click on the top edge of the page. This will bring out the device menu.
  3. Click on “Page Display.”
  4. Click on “Font and Page Settings.”
  5. Choose the font that you want.

That’s how you change the font on a Kindle Paperwhite. The great thing is that as soon as you click on any of the fonts in there, the font will change. This allows you to assess whether or not the new font is to your liking without having to leave the page.

Which font do I use?

To those who are interested, I personally use the Bookerly font on my Paperwhite. I admit I haven’t really experimented with any of the other fonts. What I discovered while writing this article was that I like the bolder font types such as Hevetica and Amazon Ember Bold. However, I don’t think I am going to switch from Bookerly, which I have grown rather used to.
