I'm looking for an e-book reader or tablet for use in a kitchen. Most of the recipes I use are in electronic form (saved web pages, scans of recipe cards, etc.), and running back and forth between the kitchen and the computer room while cooking is a bit annoying.
- Must be kitchen-proof. That means surviving grease splatters, spills of boiling water, and the occasional dropped knife.
- Supports HTML, PDF, and either CBZ or folders full of images.
- Must be able to put files on it from Linux.
- Prefer an e-ink display. I've found that backlit displays aren't very good when you're shifting your attention between the display and something else.
- No real price requirements, but less expensive is better. Something that meets requirements 2-4 for less than $30 is also an option, because at that price, I can afford to replace it every time it gets destroyed.
