Amazon has introduced new typesetting features for about 500,000 Kindle e-books (for devices and apps that support the new typesetting features). This number will rise to about 3,000,000 over the course of the next year.
For example, Kindle Paperwhite’s latest update now supports new typesetting features for Kindle e-books that have this enabled.
The new Kindle typesetting features include, for example:
- automatic hyphenation
- the new Bookerly font
- improved justification
I’m a big fan of the new Bookerly font. Just switching the font to Bookerly on my Kindle Paperwhite makes a significant difference.
Not all Kindle e-books support enhanced typesetting presently, but there is a way to tell. Here is how to determine whether or not a Kindle e-book supports the new typesetting features:
- If you’re shopping on the Amazon.com full site, look just below the book description. In very small print, look for Enhanced Typesetting: Enabled.
