Kindle Create Fonts

Hi guys,
I'm just getting ready to release my first novel, Wander, and I downloaded Kindle Create to get it ready.
I wrote the book in Times New Roman, but when I try to select that font in Kindle Create it isn't listed as an option. Since you can change your fonts as a reader, are the fonts listed on Kindle Create just there since those are the options  to read it in? Is there any point to the fonts there at all?
Thanks in advance,

RE: Kindle Create Fonts

Kindle only has about 5 fonts, and they differ to some extent between devices. They're also selected by the reader, not controlled by the author. So just sit back, relax and leave it on the default.

I agree with Tim. Don't worry about the font in an eBook. The reader chooses the formatting.
