Getting a better reading experience in Google Reader with larger serif fonts

I have been getting frustrated with the readability of the article body text within Google Reader. It’s just a bit too small and I find it much easier to read serif fonts for large sections of text. I also adjusted the line-height to improve legibility.

So I have created a user stylesheet with which changes the body text to something a bit better.

Install Stylish extension for Chrome to be able to use this and then head over to and you can enable this style on your google reader.
