Does anybody have any experiences using Ebooks for graduate level study? In particular Kindle books or books from Coursemart? Making citations?

I'm going to be taking a few graduate courses online while traveling abroad. I need three textbooks. All three are available for the Kindle through Amazon. Only two are available through Coursemart. I bought a tablet with the hopes I could use it for the texts and avoid carrying three more books with me when traveling. I see two potential problems, that being said my question ultimately has two parts:

1. Can I get away with citing a Kindle book as a source? I know some books now have page numbers, but I suspect these may not. APA would be the appropriate style. If I can cite from a Kindle formatted book, how would I do so?
2. Coursemart offers the page numbers and same formatting as the hard copies, but of course you can't keep the books after the 6 month license. I may want to reference these down the road. Is there anyway to keep Coursemart texts indefinitely? Strip DRM or convert to another format.
Let me know your thoughts people. Thanks.
