So, I’m a geek. (This isn’t news.) But because I’m geeky and would be a professional student if I could get paid for it, it’s no surprise that I like to read up on things. Partly so I have more useless trivia to spout during really awkward dinners with my in-laws, but partly so I’m prepared for all sorts of random things.
With this in mind, I need to build my apocalypse library. I don’t have many books yet. I mean, yeah, I have the Hunger Games trilogy. I also have Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson (which I’m currently reading). I also have The Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse by Jason Boyett.
Other than that, I haven’t read anything else. But I do need to be (more) prepared, if only to lessen my screaming and running around in circles when the apocalypse does hit. (Or, at least, I need to pretend I’m prepared.)
So, with that in mind, I need some recommendations. What, in your opinion, is important pre-apocalypse reading? I’m open to fiction and non-fiction recommendations. After all, I need to be prepared for different apocalyptic scenarios. I mean, we don’t know for sure it’s going to be a robot apocalypse.
So? Thoughts? I need to build my pre-apocalypse apocalyptic library.
