Consolidated Book List
« on: March 23, 2012, 10:35:01 am »
I had a little free time this morning waiting for a machine install so I went through the book recommendations and built a reference list of the books that were on it.  (WOW, Lots of great book suggestions).

There may be a few duplicates and I did not verify every book and spelling, just copied and pasted what was listed so there may be mispellings and errors that carried over) 

I also haven't had a chance to go through it and kill duplicates.   Any admin or mod can edit the list if they see a mistake or duplicate.  (Please add an author on the items that don't have an author listed if you know the author).

This can be updated as needed.  Makes for a great quick downloadable list to put on your smart phone or to print and take with you to the book store and check off.  (I will make a spreadsheet version available when I have time). 

Thanks for all the great book suggestions.  I have LOTS of stuff I want to add to the library.

I would also like to do the same with a list of free, open source PDF's and Ebooks.  But that will have to come later.

I just added an app called LibriVox to my smart phone. Through this, you have access to an entire library of public domain audio books.  I just downloaded and am listening to Camping and Woodcraft by Horace Kephart. 

There is a free version of this app that will scroll ads in a window across the bottom and a paid version without ads ($1.99).

There is already a pretty extensive library of books available for this app.

I'll see if it works for kindle
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.-henry David Thoreau
