Good? It depends. For me the version from CTAN is ok. ;-

 Hi,
 
 What are the best fonts fdor readability. I'm not too fond
 of the CM 
 fonts. However, if they are really the best I may stick to
 them. I've 
 heard that Palatino is good too. I think I also heard Luxi
 mentioned 
 (lucida?) but I'm not sure.

 Garamond Condensed, but I can´t get for Lyx.

Hello,

 What are the best fonts fdor readability.

It depends. ;-

On the output medium, the output process, the specific application...

If you can afford it, Sabon (Next) has an excellent reputation as book font. 
And Syntax (Next) is generally considered the sans-serif counterpart to Sabon.

Among the free fonts available for LaTeX, Garamond is probably the one with the 
best reputation for readability.

Personally, I like Linux Libertine. But I'm just an amateur.

Sincerely,

Wolfgang

There is also a free clone called Bitstream Classical Garamond which can
be found on old Corel-Draw-CDs (4 and 8, AFAIK; I have Corel Draw 4).
These old CDs can be purchased at Ebay, for instance. The font metrics
needed for use with LaTeX can be found at http://www.gaehrken.de/tex/.

Of course this is just a clone of the 'old' Sabon and not of Sabon Next.
