Let's start a preppers book list.
Anything from favorite fiction, to DIY and everything in between.

My first submission is a great DIY book Reader's Digest: Back to Basics
This is an older edition but we love it. My DM found in for less than $1 at the public library clearance table. SWEET!

Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook 

5 Rah --- 10 years ago -

I just checked Amazon.com and they have several different editions of "Back to Basics" priced from $16 -$25.00. Your DM did well :)

Just so happens I also have this book and I love it!!!

Now the ironic thing...I stopped by the library today and they had a copy of "Reader's Digest New Complete Do-it-Yourself Manual" $2.00!!! I think Reader's Digest had published several different books of this type. Anyway, this one has illustrations and directions on just about anything that needs to be done around the house. Think I might change out that wobbly toilet and if I am still alive after fixing the electric wiring in the shed, I'll start on the kitchen sink!....
Maybe I'll call my DSIL (dear son in law)

favorite fiction: "Watership Down" by Richard Adams
This is where 5 Rah comes from :)

I was at a library book sale last weekend and I bought 2 books on building underground homes....

Cool in the summer, warm in the winter

If you're interested in canning, the Ball Blue Book Guide is essential. Clear easy to understand instructions, lists of supplies, and awesome recipes. You can grab it off the Amazon link or check your local Walmart. I picked one up last year for around $6. 

Basher FiveTwo --- 10 years ago -

OMGosh...that book freaked me out! I read it recently. I'm SO glad I already had a good head start on prepping. Found myself doing a mental checklist RATHER than thinking, "Crap...I need this, that, and the other!"

I think OSA is a frighteningly realistic look has how society would unfold if an EMP were as devastating as many predict.

One Second After by William Forstchen. Deals with EMP strike and loss of Americas electricity for one year. Scary as Hell and full of surviving methods.

Three people have recommended that book to me.

I just hope our radioactive sensing satellites can prevent such an event.

It would truly suck to have all my electronics go bye bye. I'm guessing it would fry any solar panels I get too. 

Basher FiveTwo --- 10 years ago -

In the book...there are three launched from regular scud type missile launchers from container ships. One on the west coast, east coast, and gulf of mexico. If that happened...we'd be done and thats that. ALSO...this same electricity outage can be caused by a solar flare. 

MYSTRY UNLEASHED --- 10 years ago -

I think this one would be cool to have.

Another good book for forging is:

A good mapsco book is a must as well as a complete repair manual for any vehicles firearms and or equipment you might own ..... Another fun bit of reading which is also full of useful information is the us army zombie combat skills lol its actually full of excellent water and food procurement essentials as well as defense and shelter and it keeps you interested

Just ordered 5 books by David Barton.

America's Godly Heritage

There are SO many more I'd like to have in our historically accurate library, but this is a good start. We're adding them to our current (small) collection:
Original Intent and The Second Amendment also by Barton.

This man is an amazing resource for the truth behind the founding our our Nation!
