Oh Miller you didn't just post this. You know how much work it's gonna mean for me to get my collection together and then take a pic. I have material everywhere. I can picture it now, the wife comes home from work and I have books, magazines, spreadsheets etc spread all over the house, she just gives me that stare, every guy knows the stare, drops her bags and goes into the bedroom without saying a word. "Honey!, what happended was this guy Miller on the forum.....oh forget it".

No, no need to go shopping.  Just a need to see what you have, get it organized into one location....if for no other reason than to be able to pack it up and load it out in a hurry.
(or make a shopping list...you didn't REALLY need that new 999' plasma presure cooker TV and coffee maker.....did ya?!! ;))

Besides, much like other skills, the time to train is before the emergency, not after. Good fireside reading right now...thinking about warm soil between your fingers....sun on your back....2nd degree sunburn for you night-owls

(but being winter and all, I'll let you slide this time.....>THIS TIME.....not the next. >:(

Just be glad I don't ask to see your SEDITIOUS reading material shelf........amazing just what I've collected over the years  ???

As the famous quote by Erasmus goes, “When I get a little money, I buy books; and, if any is left, I buy food and clothes.”

Ha!  World War Z, I've got that one...somewhere. 

All my damn books are under the bed & I ain't digging 'em out for you fools.  Besides, what kind of weirdo takes pics of their bookshelves? ;D

Oh wait, I do have a few edible plants & some gardening books handy...no, I'm still not taking a picture.
