I forget how many threads I've seen asking about some of the better SHTF/EOTWAWKI
books, and now that I've gotten mine ordered, I thought I would share my find.
The titles that I've usually seen are "Lucifer's Hammer", "I Am Legend" and
"Alas Babylon." (Not so sure about the last one)

Anyway here is my find for your reading pleasure:

Day After Doomsday

(They are pricey, but VERY high quality. Leatherbound, low acid paper, gilt page edges, and
page marking ribbon sewn right in. I have several from them on a variety of subjects and am
quite satisfied with the quality)

looks cool. I'd love to have another copy of Alas Babylon, haven't read it in years.

This is where the End Of The World As We Know It consists of things leaning on other things
before they fall down and we literally have a scenario where society crumbles.

Actually it's the END of the End Of The World As We Know It. Whoa, that's deep.

I just picked up Alas, Babylon for $5.98 from Powells. Those look nice, but I think I'll pass on the $75 version and put the extra $69.02 toward my preps.

I did say they were pricey. However, with acid-free paper the paper in the books won't turn yellow
and cause you to eventually throw it away.
Also, it is a set. All the books or nothing, and it is 5 payments of $75.00 each for the set.

There's something about leather bond books that makes them a greater pleasure to own and the reading is more enjoyalble too.
I like quality and that looks like it. Heavy acid free paper is good for sketching and drawing, and I use it when I make my own notebooks. Also use waxed cloth for the covers, the result is functional yet so very cool.
Here's a little sketch I made.

I agree with you there. I've got some SHTF paperbacks that are every bit of 15+ years old and are still readable even if the pages are slightly yellowed.
