Best Selling eBooks

I was surprised today to find out from the Wall Street Journal that a "Best Seller" category for eBooks even existed.  Indeed, even our affiliate has such a category!  For some time on my "Library Thing" site, many new authors promote their books via free copies of eBooks.  It would seem only logical to have a best seller list for them! As book stores and printed books fall by the wayside, the digital media will continue to grow.  Good luck authors!

The Top 10 Books to Have in Your Shelter or Hide-Away

I'd like to suggest what I consider to be the top 10 books to have in any survival bunker or hide-a-way. Disaster survival may be from a few days or forever depending on what happens. Reference books can be put to good use at anytime.

  1. Bible
  2. How New Way Things Work By David Macaulay
  3. Back to Basics: A Complete Guide to Traditional Skills By Abigail R. Gehring
  4. Black & Decker The Complete Photo Guide to Home Improvement
  5. The American Red Cross First Aid and Safety Handbook
  6. The Vegetable Gardener's Bible By Edward C. Smith
  7. The Survival Manual (Outdoor Life): Urban Adventure - Wilderness Survival - Disaster Preparedness By The Editors of Outdoor Life Magazine
  8. Western Civilizations: Their History & Their Culture By Judith Coffin, Robert Stacey
  9. The Art of Blacksmithing By Alex W. Bealer
  10. Nature's Garden: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants By Samuel Thayer

There are of course almost an infinite numbers but I believe these books will be a valuable resource for a long time. All can be ordered through by clicking on one of the links in the side bar! Remember, "Knowledge is Power"!
