    Default Book suggestions sticky

    I was wondering if anyone can create a book suggestion sticky and the members add to it. I see several books recommended in various threads but then it gets lost in the shuffle.I know I want to read "patriots" I think it is and "The creature" There were several others that were mentioned in threads last night. Something called John Galt or a book with that charater in it.What other books along these lines would you all recommend?ThanksBG

    Unintended Consequences is a must read.

    There are only two types of warriors in this world. Those that serve tyrants and those that serve free men. I have chosen to serve free men, and if we as warriors serve free men, we must love freedom more than we love our own lives. -- Sergeant First Class Stefan Mazak, 5th Special Forces Group

    I just finished "Patriots" and it is a very good read. Some other books I would recommend:

    Living Off The Land In The City And The Country
    Can You Survive by Robert DePugh (the old Minutemen founder)
    Total Resistance by Maj. H. Von Dach
    Life After Doomesday (somewhat dated)
    Putting Food By
    the entire Foxfire series

    The Foxfire series is good because it details crafts and skills the Appalachian mountain people had from log cabin construction to making moonshine and everything in between.

    Life As We Knew It - Susan Beth Pfeffer

    A meteor hits the moon and knocks it closer to earth. Tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanoes begin. One family tries to survive in the new reality. Youth fiction, excellent quick read.

    "Heaven" by Randy Alcorn

    This book is the best ever, I got it shortly after becoming a widow (DH #2). This is a GREAT book for anyone greiving, or anyone wanting to know what Heaven really will be like.

    I would describe it as a tour-guide for our next destination. Based on the Bible and referenced to scripture throughout.
    They will fight against you but will not overcome you,
    for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the Lord. Jer 1:19

    Assume nothing, question everything.

    There's no excuse not to have a good attitude.
    Unless you're out of booze and pills, of course.

    Under the Radar


    I'd like to recommend a couple of series' books I've read in recent years that I really enjoyed. Both were written for "young adult" readers, so you'll find them in the teen section at the library. I

    The first one is a story of war and survival. The first book is Tomorrow When The War Began by John Marsden
    It takes place Christmastime (summer!) in Australia. A group of young people is on a camping trip, while most of adults (ranchers) are at the big District Fair. One morning, a large air strike and occupying army from an unspecified Asian country invades their district. Most of the men were at the fair, so they were easily captured and confined to the compound. Once the teens realize what's happened, there's lots of adventures as they try to resist the occupation and keep from getting captured. There are six or seven books in the series and my husband and I both enjoyed all of them.

    The second one is a Cosmic catastrophe. The first book is called Life As We Knew It by Susan Pfeffer- a large asteroid or comet collides with the Moon and knocks it out of orbit and closer to Earth, touching off earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, and Nuclear Winter! This book is about suburban Americans trying to stay alive. It's a good prep story about what can happen- and what can go wrong (people not working together) I was somewhat upset with one character in the book- a corrupt minister that was surviving at the expense of others. As a stand alone book, it seemed an Anti-Christian message. Then I read the second book, The Dead And The Gone, which is a story of the same catastrophe, as experienced by a Puerto Rican family living in NYC. In this book, religious leaders are sympathetic and laboring hard to care of survivors. I'd welcome a third book, because she gave me lots to think about re: preparation!
    "This is my Father's world.
    O let me ne'er forget
    that though the wrong seems oft so strong,
    God is the ruler yet."
