What I do want to point out is that once you're on one of those result pages of TINY print for an item, there is a solution.
You can press Menu and then "Article Mode" to read the book description there.
It's extremely clear that way. And it loads quickly also.
I've made some screenshots above to show you the difference if you choose this reading mode that Amazon has provided but doesn't say much about.
In Article Mode, however, you can't choose to buy or interact -- but once out of Article mode and back to Web Mode (you can use Menu or Back-arrow to get back to Web Mode), you can opt to press a button to get a free sample (from which you can later get the book if you like the sample) or to "purchase" it for $0.00 if the current pricing is still free. If intrigued, the latter is wise, as the free-books last for only hours or a couple of days.
With a Kindle Touch, all of this is fairly easy. While you can pinch-zoom the entire page of text and see it larger, you'd still need to scroll around. So it's best to start with selecting 'Article Mode.' Once you're back on the tiny-font webpage, use pinch-zoom to enlarge the text to find the box to request a sample if wanted, or to get the book.
With the Kindle Keyboard's results page, you get a ZOOM box that you can click on to enlarge that boxed section. This can be good for getting a sample but it's awkward. You still do have, however, that 'Article Mode' for reading the book description.
I hope this helps. Amazon's recent change to a faster-loading books-webpage makes clicking on links of interest with your Kindle device more worthwhile than in the past.
