12 Survival Books Worth Reading

Like many of you, I enjoy being swept away by a good book. I even carry a light novel in my bug out bag.  The Prepper in me wants to make sure I have a good book to read even if the “lights-go-out”.   The library is a great resource to try out new books.  If the book is particularly good, I’ll purchase it and add it to my personal library collection.  The local library has many books on CD which allow me to listen while driving or while working around the house.

My favorite Prepper books are biographies, autobiographies, and historical fictions about real crisis. As the famous Churchill saying goes, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it”.  There are many different styles of preparedness books. Depending on your mindset, different styles appeal to different Preppers.  If you’re not sure what you prefer or want to try something new, the list below is a mixture of non-fiction and fiction survival books worth reading.  There are 12 highly recommend books, one for each month of the year.
