I feel like I'm being a hypochondriac but I'll ask anyway. Has anyone had an issue with the text font fading over time? I'm feeling like my text isn't as dark as when I first got it, but I'm not sure. lol

I'm probably just reading waaaay too many sun fade posts.

Not all books are formatted equally, some have darker text than others.

I haven't had any fading issues.

Have you installed the font hack? I'm using the Helvetica 2 font, and for the books it works on it looks very nice.

oh, really? Maybe that's what it is. I've been downloading pdf's and I was starting to freak out thinking I'd have to take my skin off and re-download everything with a new K2. I just have the standard font. It's not a problem at all, I was just worried it was an internal problem, I can still read okay. :)

I only noticed this after I noticed it was fading in the sun.  I think the sun fade thing had a slightly perm effect on my Kindle.  The text does seem lighter and I have more ghosting out of the sun, but after it was exposed to and fading in the sun.   So I went ahead and got Amazon to send me a new one today.
