I thought that I would write something on this subject, so as to help and inspire people to read FREE and nearly FREE books whenever possible.
I read and collect books having to do with prepping, survivalism(military stories, adventure stories, world wars, EMPs, hurricanes), hand to hand combatives, violent people and how to defeat them, medical books, knife use and knife targeting, warfare(conventional, guerrilla, asymmetric, war novels), physics, leaders of the past and present(Einstein, Hitler, Mao, Che, Patton, Trump, ...), societies and what makes them tick(capitalism, socialism, marxism, nationalism, ...)...
I buy a lot of Kindle books(110+ books), and when I feel like researching a subject I start with Google and Wikipedia, and then move over to Gutenberg Press for 100% FREE books and download as many on a particular subject or author as I can. I have studied 175+ topics and have a multitude of books in each folder.
NOW, of course, I have not read every book that I own from cover to cover and I read at least 10 to 20 books at once. I get too bored reading one book. I usually start reading a book, and I may read it for a day or more then find another subject and keep right on going.
This is my FREE books collection (from A to N, the rest are out of sight).
NOTE: The way that Gutenberg Press works is if it has fallen out of copyright, they publish as long as someone produces the file. There are different Gutenberg Press servers around the world. Some have different laws as to what is FREE, so you really need to go around the globe when you are researching a topic as you may find what you are looking for in the EU, Australia, ...
