NOTE:  I am Updat­ing this post and the updat­ed data/files can be found here:  http://www.suburbansurvivalblog/updated-survival-library/

My Web Host is ask­ing I change where my doc­u­ments are host­ed, and am mov­ing them to anoth­er doc­u­ment host­ing ser­vice.  The new post will take some time to com­plete so please check back often…

So, by elec­tron­ic sur­vival library, I mean read­able in PDF, MS Word, or on my Kin­dle App on my iPad.  I cur­rent­ly have all my elec­tron­ic books on the iPad, net­book, my lap­top, and a cou­ple of key chain USB keys (one of which is attached to my keys).  I keep them all seg­re­gat­ed by their gen­er­al top­ics, such as, “First Aid, Knots, Ter­ror­ism, etc.”  I am slow­ly work­ing my way through read­ing all these books as a mat­ter of self edu­ca­tion.  In addi­tion to that, as I men­tioned, I keep them handy on my elec­tron­ic devices, one of which is always with me, in the event I “need” to ref­er­ence them in a pinch.  They cov­er a wide range of cat­e­gories, and some are much more com­pre­hen­sive than the oth­ers, but all are worth read­ing and perus­ing no mat­ter how sim­ple or com­pre­hen­sive…

Oh, and some of these may not be the exact doc­u­ments, as I could not upload them for down­load due to copy­right vio­la­tions, but there are many PDFs below.  Enjoy.
