Yes! The fonts can be made quite large, actually. This is my 4th Kindle - they all are capable of enlarging the font. Never thought I'd prefer this to real books but I love not having them stacked up everywhere and I love not having to go to a bookstore to find something to read. The paperwhite editions (glare proof) are my particular favorites and I love that I can light the screen up in different degrees too (not so bright to brighter), Good Luck!
