When you’re building a prepper book collection, it is important to keep a few things in mind. First, you want to focus on books that are relevant to your particular circumstances. For example, if you live in a region liable to flooding, you will want to include books that deal with how to protect your home, possessions and family from a localised flood, including preparing grab bags for a quick exit. Next, you want to find books that are easy to understand. While there are plenty of excellent guides and manuals available, many people find that technical books are too dense and hard to comprehend, especially if they are new to this. If you are struggling, it may be a good idea to take a look at some more simple books and illustrated guides instead.
