"Vellum has posted a new video at their website http:/www.newkindlebooks.com that informs Kindle owners they now format their entire shelf of digital books to a Times New Roman Bold type to give Vellum books a darker, easier-to-read text.
"Since the release of the Kindle 2, we've been hearing a lot of discussion from readers about the text being lighter on the new Kindle," said Meyer, President of Vellum Publishing, Inc.Is Amazon listening? Are they interested?
"So, in keeping with our company policy of listening and responding to our readers' concerns, we came up with what we feel is a good solution. By using bold print, the text is noticeably clearer and easier to read, causing less eyestrain for the reader."
Meyer went on to say that since the re-formatting process has been completed, readers have responded with positive enthusiasm, commenting on how much easier Vellum Publishing, Inc. books are to read when compared to other books they have downloaded to their Kindle 2.
