  1. I tend to use the basic setting when reading on an ereader, so small serif font, no columns, no extra line distance.

  2. I also use the basic on my ereader, not really used to using it, only got it recently

    ReplyDelete
  3. Small serif font, no columns, and sometimes I add a little extra line distance, depending on what the publisher's default spacing looks like. My main quirk is that I like to use sepia mode.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I use the normal setting juste like a book. I need the light on the ereader.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Would read on an ereader if I had one, with clear font and readable size. Alternative just PDF.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm for the basic setting but sometimes go for larger font when my eyes feel strained.

    ReplyDelete
  7. "How do or would you read on an ereader, big font/small font, kind of font, columns/no columns, extra line distance or not, etc." Hmm, I'm not sure I've thought it all through: I suppose large font, arial, no columns (?) but with both right and left justified (?), and I'm not sure if I would need extra line distance--I'm definitely not a fan of line spacing that is too squished together!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I tend to read it how it comes as I can't figure out how to change settings.lol

    ReplyDelete
  9. I have an old ereader that the light no longer works on but I used to love it! I do increase the Arial font a little, but I'd love to try Bookerly.

  10. This is a little bit embarassing to admit, but I have never even thought to change the settings!

    ReplyDelete
  11. My Kindle settings are pretty much average I think - fonts are set to medium size and I haven't been toying around with other settings yet. It's great though that (as it happens with some ebooks) I can make fonts larger and easier to read if I need to.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have no idea, I'm a fresh Kindle owner and never changed those settins!! Lol

    ReplyDelete
  13. I don't have an e-reader, prefer physical books.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I use teh basic setting, I want it as close as real as possible, and easy to read

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've never used an ereader but I'm sure I would need a large & clear font as my eyesight is poor

    ReplyDelete
  16. I just use the normal setting when reading with my e-reader.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Most likely I would stick to the basic settings.

    ReplyDelete
  18. When I tried an e-reader while on holiday, I used the normal setting. As close to a real book and good lighting too.

    ReplyDelete
  19. As I'm dyslexic I need to tune fonts and contrast finely otherwise the meaning of the text gets lost, but also my needs change throughout the day as my eyes get more tired.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I just try to get as much on a page as possible so I'm not constantly pressing to the next lol! I'm a fast reader and can read any font, even small!

    ReplyDelete

    1. I'm like that as well. I'm guilty of filing several complaints with Amazon because I find their smallest font too large, but they don't want to change it :P.

      Delete
  21. I am clueless, lol. I just switch it on when I want to use it and off I go, though I am old fashioned and prefer a book in my hands so it doesn't get used often.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love that I can change the settings as needed. I usually read with 'normal' settings but I change if the lighting is poor or I am reading in direct sunlight.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have never used an e reader before so I don't know but would guess I would use the normal setting

    ReplyDelete
  24. I use my iPad Mini as my ereader and just set the text to a comfortable reading size (no idea what), making sure there is enough text on the page as I'm a fast reader. Other than that, I haven't really messed with the settings. I still mostly read real books rather than ebooks but do have a growing ebook collection of books that I'm not prepared to pay paperback/hardback prices for. Rafflecopter entries are in my real name NIKKI HAYES - thanks for another fantastic Kindle Fire giveaway, I'm determined to win one of these for my husband sometime :D

  25. I just use the standard settings.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well I don't have an ereader, and I do have a ipad, but I have no idea if or how to get books onto that (that should be big enough for my old eyes) IF my daughter still lived here she would figure that out for me...I've googled it but don't know if its possible etc

    ReplyDelete
  27. I just read on a normal settings. lol. Not too bright, though.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I just used the settings my kindle came with. Suits me fine so I haven't changes them.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I generally use the default settings of my Kindle. Occasionally, I will adjust the screen glare.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes, I read on my phone (I don't have a Kindle) when ever I can't find the novel at our local library or the novelist has published an e-book only. I am really fond of a standard or small setting as it's so much easier and faster to read than an actual book. Please don't misunderstand me, it's such a pleasure to be able to hold a physical book in my hand and to smell the pages but, equally, using my phone to read is a fantastic experience too.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I use a Samsung galaxy tab for reading. Single column, medium text, and on night mode. Night mode is easier on my eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't think that I've changed my settings on my Kindle since I purchased it. I might have increased the font size, and made the screen brighter.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've never used an e-reader but I do sometimes read e-books on my phone. I like having a fairly plain font, single column, medium to small text.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I mine set to size that could be considered bigger than ususal, single page, simple font and a sepia tinted background. The white is too glaring for me after a while it hurts my eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I use the standard Kindle settings for line/margin etc, but I use the 2nd to smallest font and actually use whatever font I think goes best with the particular book I'm reading (I shy away from the most modern fonts though - just don't suit my style! ;) ).

    ReplyDelete
  36. I tend to have a medium font, and usually single column, depending on the layout of the book. For my next ereader I'd really like one that's back lit. My Sony eReader (may it rest in peace) wasn't backlit, so no 2am reading under the covers for me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have to admit that I never change the font. I always read the text as it comes. Think I might enlarge it slightly now though

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think the only thing I have changed is the size of the font - to big - I need to play around a bit more, see what else I can do!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've always read the books as they come, never felt the need to change font or anything so far.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I sometimes make the print bigger, but usually keep everything as is.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I make the font bigger it's easier on my eyes other then that don't need to change anything thank you for the give away good luck to all!

  53. l haven't got a kindle at the moment but would probably use the normal settings and see how l go from there. My eyesight is ok at the moment so hopefully wouldn't need to change it too much.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I've don't really adjust the setting except for well read enough font size (ususlly not so big not so small) and brightness or backlit depends on the situation. Btw, the tweet share from the widget was the wrong giveaway so I edited like what you normally would share in giveaway as the title suggest, i hope you don't mind.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  78. I need to admit the same as Michelle did: This is a bit embarassing, but I have never even thought to change the settings! I have an old Kindle Keyboard and I use it as it was when I ve got it. But your question caused that I have downloaded its users guide and I will learn how my settings could be changed to make a reading more pleasant.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  81. I have a eReader and I love it. I probably use a larger font than most because I am an old person! I think the most important thing is to utilize the screen blue adjust for night reading.
