Hello anons.

I will soon, go live in nature. I want to abandon this shitty civilization and go resource myself in nature, but i want also keep reading. It will be a sort of purification of the body and the mind.

The problem is that i want to keep reading, but i can't bring dozens of books in my bag, that's why i want to have a way to read on a screen.

I had a e-reader, a Kobo (120€, don't remember the model) but i sold it because she didn't read well pdf's files.

Do you have a e-reader who read pdf good ? Or should i buy a tablet with anti-blue filter ? But the problem is that the autonomy is lower than a e-reader (i will have a solar charge).

Thanks everyone.

I have a asus zenpad 3s. I like it really well. It has a bluelight function on it.

Get an e-reader, and install KOReader on it.

Set it to landscape mode, set the zoom mode to 'Zoom to fit content width', and enable auto or semi-auto page cropping. You should be able to get a good third to a half a page on the screen at a time and have the text be a reasonable size.

It depends how much you want to spend. I lucked out and found a Kindle DX (the discontinued large screen kindle) on craigslist for 50 Canadian Dollaroos. All of the current gen large format ereaders are 400Cad+.

edit: can't get my kindle dx registered, so can't transfer. bought books onto it. only worth it if you're interested in reading only pirated books.

You can transfer bought books to an unregistered kindle, its just a lengthier process. You need calibre and and old version of kindle for pc, I think 1.17 its the last one before the new DRM. Then get the books from the kindle folder and throw them to calibre, convert them to mobi and from calibre put them in the kindle.

That might be a good alternative to the "established" brands. Post-purchase support might not be as good.

A decent tablet

000000  No.11933

Ok guys, OP here.

I come back to you after a little while, I was busy. I go on a trip, in the nature this summer, I already have some equipment. For the tablet, I still have not decided but I do not think to take a e-reader, I think of going on a tablet.

Which tablet do you recommend? Knowing that it must be resistant, no apple shit.

Is Raspberry good? I find it nice to be able to mount his own tablet.

Thank you.

If you go for a tablet, you'll compromise on much of the battery life. And a tablet's LCD display might fare badly under sunlight.

Kindle Paperwhite seems the best to me (then check if the OS can be rooted, search for it).

Get a used Kobo aura

Ok i agree with that. But i have book about comestibles plants and i need a color.

But if the e-reader really worth, well i guess i'll buy one.

Kindle Paperwhite or another ?

I got the paperwhite kindle and I am satisfied with it. I dislike the kindle format, I like to run pdf through it.#

The battery lasts long enough. When I read every day one hour or more the battery lasted for two weeks, otherwise it lasts much longer.

There is no color though

yeah, the kindle dx is fine for novels, but it sucks for PDFs (which is most of what I want to read). I have a kindle DX, but it's getting kind of old and I am thinking of upgrading to one of the ebook readers on aliexpress. I want the boox max 2 but the price is so… damn hard to justify.

I meant kindle paper white is fine for novels, but sucks for PDFs. Kindle DX is great for PDFs, but they are getting old now

Get an ipad for 300 bucks. Fuck everything else.

iPad is hard on the eyes and is distracting because of other apps
