I had something similar- although on the actual kindle, not the app. The font was almost greyed out and very difficult to read. None of my other downloads were affected. In the end I purchased the actual book and it was printed the same - a light grey font-but easier to read.  The kindle book reviews had several complaints about how difficult  it was to read ( wish Id noticed them first!). I would suspect its how the book has been converted from the original rather than an issue with your app.

I thought that might be the case, in fact I looked through lots of reviews to see if anyone had mentioned it! Perhaps it's just me who doesn't like it. I think I'll have to bite the bullet and read it as it it is, it has such good reviews and is the first in a series.

Thanks  :)

Thanks bluesofa. Unfortunately I wouldn't have a clue how to do that, I hadn't heard of Calibre, had to Google to see what it is.

Actually this morning I've had a blinding flash of inspiration along with one of those 'duh, why didn't I think of that before?' moments. Why don't I just read it on my Kindle itself?  ::) It's not so convenient as it isn't backlit but it being a basic model is to my advantage in that there is no colour on the page. I've checked and it just appears normal.

Thanks everyone for your help.  :)
