Starting a list of haves and wants for books on hand post SHTF.
These books are what I consider to be classic.
1st) this is not a list of “prepper” books, (i.e. the boy scouts hand book or the SAS handbook.
2nd) this list does not include the Bible, [As I already have Bibles in over 2 dozen English translations, Bibles in several other languages (including German, spanish, dutch, korean, and pigeon English (it’s a thing)].
I also have a collection of old Bibles with my oldest going back about 170 years if I recall correctly. Some of the early family Bibles had additional info to explain about things and places in distant lands.
Atlas Shrugged since I felt I have been living in that book lately.
Shakespear (spelled correctly of course)
Does the CRC Handbook and Machineries Handbook count as prepper books?
A hard-copy encyclopedea since you will need to “Google” without Google.
All of the engineering books I can lay my hands on and a full set of math books from basic thru quantum mechanics and everything in between.
