Face it, some fonts look cool--or even fit your theme, but they don't read well in large blocks of text. Recently I developed a font for my dd to use in a book she was creating about a pioneer trek she took. It was modeled after the Emily Austen font. It looked great--but was extremely difficult to read at sizes under 36 pt! So we scrapped the font and used a tried and true one instead. Some tried and true fonts are: Times, Garamond and Goudy. One of Jessica Sprague's favorites for blocks of text is Century Gothic.Print a sample of the text you plan to use and ask a few people to read it--you'll get an idea if it will work.
