I suppose if you’re reading this post, the world didn’t end like the Mayan Calender predicted.

I sort of had a feeling it wouldn’t.
But nonetheless, it got me thinking about what sort of books would be good to read should the End of the World ever happen, and I came up with two types:
Post Apocalyptic Handbooks and Long Reads to Pass the Time.

I’m sure you’ve read most of the “handbooks” already, but they would definitely fare for a reread. After all, the first time around was for pleasure, the second time around you’ll need to pick up some skills.
