I will be travelling abroad to Tanzania next semester: Internet will be almost non-existent, and I probably won't have frequent access to power-outlets. I need to write my Senior Seminar for my History major while I'm there.
My plan is to download a ton of articles and books in PDF format before I leave in January, and carry them with me on an e-reader to do my research. I'll be writing my paper with old-fashioned pencil and notebook.
I've heard about converting PDF files to mobi format to enhance readability on an e-reader. Is this a good option? What's a typical file size?
Lastly, what e-reader should I get? I need one which:
Has a long battery life (>3 days)
Has enough storage for... 10,000 pages?
Is cheap. I'm a college student.
So far I'm thinking about the Kobo Wireless E-reader: Looks like I can get one for about $60.
Thanks for your help guys!
