Serif fonts help with readability, and are therefore preferable in the body of a book. The “serif” is the decorative stroke that finishes each end of a letter (think Times Roman). Serif fonts are easier on the reader's eye than sans-serif fonts; the stroke leads the reader's eye from one letter to the next.

Serif typefaces have been credited with increasing both the readability and reading speed of long passages of text because they help the eye travel across a line, especially if lines are long or have relatively open word spacing

"Sans Serif" are the best choice for online text because "Serif" can blur in the pixels on a screen.

Also, sans serif can be read clearly even with very small text size especially in the body when you have a lot to put there but less space.
