What preppers life is complete without a bookshelf full of good reads. This Christmas, stuff your preppers stocking with a good book or two. Here are a couple that Ive especially enjoyed this year:
The Pulse, by Scott WilliamsThis post-apocalyptic novel chronicles the journey of a father and daughter trying to reunite after a massive EMP (electromagnetic pulse).
Think One Second After meets Dove.
Emergency, by Neil StraussNo matter how long youve been prepping or why you started, every prepper has a back story of events prompting and inspiring their actions. In Emergency, Neil Strauss shares his journey from tenderfoot to hard shell, colored with his edgy (but real) flavor.
Although this puppy came out in 2009, it still received plenty of attention from me this year (and is actually out on loan getting some more love from a friend at the moment!).
Preppers Home Defense, by Jim CobbThe complete plan for operational security and physical defense. With over 20 years of experience as an investigator, security professional, survivalst and writer, Jim combines his loves in this book by teaching you how to create a secure perimeter, safe rooms, hidden caches and more.
