    I thought it would be good to share some books in .pdf format with the boards. If there's any you want to add, feel free, but for now enjoy.

    Cool. It looks like there is a size limitation for uploads. I have a few that are too big, where should I put them?

    Upped the limit to 10MB. If that's not big enough, say the word and I'll bump it again. I've said it elsewhere, disk space is cheap :)

    This is a cross post from the NNPG forums

    I'm always looking for sources of good, current books and this one looks very good.

    They offer free PDF downloads of textbooks OR you can purchase hard/soft physical books at fairly large discounts to bookstore/college prices, for the same books.

    OpenStax

    DO ADD these to your prepper book archives, either as digital (PDF) or paid physical books.
    On warning; the website is very particular about the browsers which may be used to view their pages. My Firefox fork, Palemoon, is not on their list of "acceptable" browsers, but I was able to use the current Firefox Ver 60.0.2 to access their site and download many books in PDF format, for free.

    tulpa23; Good resource. Some of the documents are downloadable as PDFs, others are only viewable online. I'm adding what I can to my document files.

    I have an extensive library of prepping and survival type BOOKS, I don't keep much on my laptop, I don't have files or anything like that, post collapse when the power is down access to anything on a computer is probably nil, whereas my books will last for years and years, anything I want online I have printed off and filed in a ring binder.
    but then I guess i'm sort of old fashioned that way.

    With this thread I was hoping to have a series of documents that people could download directly from the site. I'm actually surprised the sites like textfiles still are up.

    I think printing these types of files out is a really good idea. As you pointed out, we may or may not have access to computers in the future, and staring at a dead box isn't going to do much good when you really need the information.

    I had the textfiles on my favourites bar on my computer a few years ago, I printed off the ones I thought were important and including them on prepper forums I was on at the time. i'm not sure how many used them.

    I would guess many people have them downloaded, but few probably printed them out.

    I have some that are printed out still, the ink has faded quite a bit over the years. Seeing that, I went ahead and found the original printed copy of as many books as I could. They seem like they will last quite a lot longer.

    I see you have the old FRC handbook. I went by EZ at that time. short from energyzippo back in the late 90s but when the old survival forum went down I went to ez. Anyway I have some more pdf's that were done for the family readiness center before I shut it down. If your interested in them?
