These are the books I read in Junior High School, Senior High School, and as a young adult that shaped me into who I am.

Fiction:

Have Space Suit, Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein (An inspiration to me when I was young)
Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein (Socio/political commentary in novel form.)
And the rest of the works of Robert A Heinlein (for the same reasons as above.)
Bulldozer by Stephen W. Meader (Another inspirational story when I was in my teens.)
A Hero For Henry by Herbert R. Purdum (A great old west comedy with valuable lessons.)
An Elephant For Aristotle by L. Sprague de Camp (Another Socio/political comentary in novel form.)
The works of Louis L'Amour The westerns and Night Over The Solomons & West From Singapore
The works of Zane Gray
The works of Edgar Rice Burroughs especially Tarzan At The Earth’s Core
The works of Earle Stanley Gardner
The works of Andre Norton especially Sea Siege
The works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The works of Sir Henry Rider Haggard
The works of Sandra Brown (Believe it or not, I learned a lot from romance novels.)
The works of Nora Roberts (Another fine romance novelist that gave me a lot to think about.)


Non-fiction:

Power! by Michael Korda (How to get it and how to use it for good or evil)

Breaking the Rules by Kurt Wright (A book and seminar that gave me great insights into people and how they treat each other and why)

Dress for Success by John T Molloy (More than just clothing. How people actually see each other and act accordingly. Urban camouflage that also teaches the hows and whys of field camouflage)

The Miss Manners Guides by Judith Martin (More than just manners. How people interact in many different situations.)


Just a few suggestions from my avid reading past.

Wow Jerry. I read a lot of the same books that you did growing up; but you have a heck of a library. I need to print this list out and head over to the used book stores to see if any of the ones that I don't have are around.

I enjoyed the James Wesley Rawles Patriots, Survivors, Founders, Expatriates series of books.

The Matthew Bracken "Enemies" trilogy is an eye-opening read of what could happen.

As usual Jerry--- a great job.

I can hardly remember all the books I have read, much less the authors!!!
I have a several of them and keep the best of the "how to" books in a zip lock bags so I can just grab them and go, if we ever have another big hurricane coming.
I also like the Foxfire book series it reminds me of our youth.

The Clan of the Cave Bear series (fiction) and I cannot remember the authors name but I love her style of writing. She tells how a girl was thrown out of her clan and how she survived with nothing but a sling shot to start out with.

Of course, my most prized book is the Bible.

BTW--I have the sand, gravel, charcoal, wood and pipes---and ordered the filters, just need the 4 barrels to start my roof water filter system.

Thanks again ---you are a wonderful person to help all of us out the way you do!!!!

Have a blessed day

I learn something from darn near everything I read, even the crap.

Whether it's a product/model that may have solar panels built-in, rations, suggestions on picking up something simple and useful, a formula for mixing something, any and all of these tidbits add up. Even when you look at it and disagree or have to defend a choice when challenged and realize you're off-base you learn something.

I have found that almost any effort at categorization is useful for making me think about specifics. Battery packs, tools, places that no one thinks about, all of those are in countless books.

These are the books I read in Junior High School, Senior High School, and as a young adult that shaped me into who I am.

Fiction:

Have Space Suit, Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein (An inspiration to me when I was young)
Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein (Socio/political commentary in novel form.)
And the rest of the works of Robert A Heinlein (for the same reasons as above.)
Bulldozer by Stephen W. Meader (Another inspirational story when I was in my teens.)
A Hero For Henry by Herbert R. Purdum (A great old west comedy with valuable lessons.)
An Elephant For Aristotle by L. Sprague de Camp (Another Socio/political comentary in novel form.)
The works of Louis L'Amour The westerns and Night Over The Solomons & West From Singapore
The works of Zane Gray
The works of Edgar Rice Burroughs especially Tarzan At The Earth’s Core
The works of Earle Stanley Gardner
The works of Andre Norton especially Sea Siege
The works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The works of Sir Henry Rider Haggard
The works of Sandra Brown (Believe it or not, I learned a lot from romance novels.)
The works of Nora Roberts (Another fine romance novelist that gave me a lot to think about.)


Non-fiction:

Power! by Michael Korda (How to get it and how to use it for good or evil)

Breaking the Rules by Kurt Wright (A book and seminar that gave me great insights into people and how they treat each other and why)

Dress for Success by John T Molloy (More than just clothing. How people actually see each other and act accordingly. Urban camouflage that also teaches the hows and whys of field camouflage)

The Miss Manners Guides by Judith Martin (More than just manners. How people interact in many different situations.)


Just a few suggestions from my avid reading past.
WOW! Wish you were in MY area! What an impressive list! Russ
