    i have 2 spare copies of "Bugging Out" by David E. Crossley (110pages). isbn no: 978-1-291-26683-2
    I will swap them if anyone is interested, nothing specific in mind, more a case of "what have you".

    This particular title is not of interest to me LW, but you have raised a really good idea that maybe we could have a book swap thread?

    that's a good idea BB, I've got quite a few I have not exactly doubles of but many titles on the same subject when I really only need one.

    I haven't got many but I can pick up nits and pieces. If we all donate one book apiece we can pool and share a lot of good knowledge together.

    I've got quite a library, I prefer physical books to e readers or kindle or whatever it is called.
    kindle might not be available post shtf but my books will.

    Get a standard kindle and they go weeks between charges plus are very easy to charge when needed. I have over a thousand fact/fiction book stored on one with room for more.

    fine for the good times but when its not possible to recharge them post SHTF because the power is down, yes I know you've got solar power, well good for you.
    I like physical books, they are immediate no charging or recharging, and post shtf they are my reference library.

    i also like books but it's nothing to do with prepping, I just like the aesthetics of handling a book...maybe it's an age thing.

    I love real books and have a lot and I mean a lot LOL. They will be boxed up and taken to New Zealand when I move. You don't get the same reading pleasure from a Kindle but...they are just so handy to have and only need a small solar charger to keep them going.

    To be honest I download all my ebooks from the internet, everything is out there.
