I am a huge fan of prepper fiction even before there was an Audible. I have a shelf full of prepper and survival novels that were somewhat the beginning of my “prepping career.”
These books will make you think of scenarios and possibilities that you may have never thought about before. From economic collapse, pandemics or an EMP, there is no way we could predict what would actually happen.
Learn as you Enjoy Some Prepper Fiction
Fortunately, we have creative minds in our midst that write excellent, thought-provoking books on the subjects. They give a pretty good idea of what could happen in an SHTF situation.
I have learned a lot from these books and in many instances, it has changed my outlook on prepping in general. I realize that an SHTF situation is completely possible and the outcome will not be pretty.
Listening to these books caused me to step up my preps drastically, especially after reading A. American’s Survivalist Series.
But I found myself in a tug of war for time to set aside for reading.
Then Came Audible
If you are stretched for time or just don’t have the attention span (like me) to make time to sit down and read, Audible is your answer.
I listen at night while trying to sleep, I listen on the way to and from work and I listen to them while writing these articles.
You could say, I am addicted to Audible. Below is a great starter list, yes, I said starter list, for anyone wanting to build their prepper library and learn some things in the process.
Right now, Audible is offering a free trial period with TWO FREE BOOKS for new members. I recommend you try this, and I promise you won’t be sorry. If you find you don’t like it, you can cancel anytime in your first 30 days.
