I am using Arch Linux on a notebook, which has a 4GB SSD drive. so I have to save disk space/storage by any possible means.

Reading technological PDFs are really painful when you have to memorize daily reading progress.

I have tried epdfview/xpdf/Foxit Reader, they are lightweight enough, but not able to keep my reading progress.

Thanks in advance.

Both apvlv and Zathura have bookmark features, and are lighter weight than either evince or okular.

Have you looked at evince? The bookmark feature is not noted in the features however, mine marks my place every time I close it. I wonder why you couldn't either offload some baggage to a flash drive or boot from a flash drive?

KDE's Okular saves reading position, although I'm not sure if you consider it "lightweight".
