books library (Custom)This week I am presenting the final giveaway in the Backdoor Survival Fall Book Festival.  If I am counting correctly, over the past few months I have featured interviews with ten authors and after adding today’s giveaway, will have rewarded readers with 11 different books.

But hold on, it is not over yet.  Next week I will announce  the Backdoor Survival Winter Book Festival.  So far I have 15 books lined up for you and some fabulous authors who have graciously answered my questions.

Before telling you about this week’s giveaway, I would like to announce the winner of last week’s giveaway.

“Dixie” has won a copy of The Home Schooled Shootist: Training to Fight with a Carbine, written by Joe Nobody.  Congratulations! I have contacted you by email with instructions for claiming your prize.

Here is what Dixie had to say about self defense:

Someone sent me this and I wanted to pass it on:

The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.

The Book Giveaway

owl reading bookBack in November, Glen Tate, the author of the 299 Days series of survival fiction books answered my questions in the article Book Festival and Giveaway: An Interview with Glen Tate.  At that time we gave away a copy of 299 Days: The Preparation.

This week, a copy of 299 Days: The Collapse has been reserved for one lucky reader.  To enter this giveaway, please enter a comment indicating your favorite prepping or survival book or your favorite survival novel or book of fiction.  It can be a print book or an e-book and can even be a how-to manual or book about gardening or other topic related to self-sufficiency.

A winner will be selected next Friday at random using tools on the website.

The Final Word

The Fall Book Festival has been a lot of fun.  I have become friends with many of the authors as well as with some the book winners.  In addition, the skills and the lessons I have learned from the books themselves have allowed me to be a  better prepared citizen of the world.

I am looking forward to sharing more great books with you and want to remind you that if you are a Facebook user, be sure to check my page frequently for freebie books from on Amazon.

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!


Spotlight Item:  In The Collapse, the government stops working, guns and ammo are in high demand, and a trip to the gas station has become a mission rather than an errand.

Grant and the Team see these warning signs and know it is only the beginning, so they begin taking action to protect themselves and their loved ones. As they prepare to get out of dodge after a deadly incident in Grant’s neighborhood, they will soon learn whether the preparations they made in Book One will be enough to survive the breakdown of society, or if they don’t stand a chance against greed and violence in the face of a collapse.

The resulting chaos and fear that begins to envelop the country will strip all of the characters of what they know to normal, and will require them to question what they will stand for, what they will stand up against, and, most importantly, who they will stand with.

Also, some of these books are Kindle e-books but you do not need a Kindle to read Kindle e-books. Simply download the free Kindle app from the Amazon site and you are good to go.

  1. The collapse of the food supply because of GMO, colony collapse, and the distances food travels to get to us, making it more and more expensive.

  2. I really like Self-Sufficiency For the 21st Century by Strawbridge which is more about homesteading than it is survival.In a slightly different genre is Dirt-Cheap Survival Retreat by M.D.Creekmore.For short term survival, Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag byCreek Stewart has many good ideas.

  3. Just stumbled across your site. Thanks for all the info. Just started with prepping. Square foot gardening is the only book I’ve read so far.

  4. My favorite–so far– is the SAS Survival Manual. It’s somewhat stark, but very practical and informative.

  5. I loved his first 299 Preparation book. Would love to have the book that goes after the first one. Great book, more like reading a story, but gave you a list of items to store and more.

  6. “One Second After”
    Currently I am in the middle of this book but it has already become my favorite. I heard there is a movie out based on the book. once i am done i will try to locate it.
