I downloaded the recent MEAP version (Java 8 Lambdas in Action) in ePub format. The fonts are really small and trying to increase it did not help. I am using Adobe digital edition 2.0 on Mac. Not sure whether this is the right forum for reporting this issue. If not, pls redirect this to the right forum.

BTW, the way book is developing is really nice. Will report back more after reading the new chapters. Thanks for the awesome work.

Re: ePub font
I checked out the Adobe reader I have, and you're right the font is really small.You might try using the Chrome epubreader. The font is larger and easier to read--at least it is for me.

Please let me know if that works.

Re: ePub font
Thanks. Yes, it is better in one of the epub app in chrome. I can use it for now. Hope this will get fixed in future revisions. Other MEAPs e-pubs are fine in Adobe Digital reader.

Re: ePub font
Hello,

Same problem when using the mobi format in the Kindle reader on my Nexus 7 tablet. The biggest issue is the code samples - they are rendered in a monospaced font but the point size is way too small.

I have tried the ePub format in two different readers on the Nexus 7. It looks OK in the Moon+ reader but in Aldiko it is unreadable.
