It was chiefly made to replace Caecilia, which has been the default font to read on the entire line of Kindles for the last four years. If you have the Kindle Voyage, now is the time to rejoice. The Bookerly font is now available to download via a wireless update.
If you have an older Kindle e-readers, the Bookerly font has also been given the all clear from Amazon. There are firmware updates now available for the Kindle Touch, Kindle 7th gen and previous-gen Kindle Paperwhite.
