Simple iliad cutting latex file for long page.

When I see letter size files, becuase height is two long, Iliad try to scale to small size. I cannot read it directly, I usually zoom it.

If I fit page to iliad width and cut one long page to 2 page,
I can easily see it without zooming and reduce time.

So I made very adhoc latex file.
Of course, this file is very simple and very ugly. But I believe some people upgrade it easily.

I believe someone can add hyperlinks in the second page which have a lot of free space.
Of course it will be possible to add TOC.

Thank you.

PS. I recommand crop file before converting.
I used pdflatex in Miktex.

Thanks harpum, this is very interesting. I've tried a couple of command line tools to convert content to PDF, but it seems LaTeX is the way to go. Your sample could be very helpful.

One benefit of latex is that converting time is more shorter than other methods. And I believe expert easily add link and TOC.
(Frankly, I do not know well Latex. Please, upgrade this ugly code.)
Thanks.
