We had a bad wind-storm this week, and between losing 'electric' (as my grandmother would say) and 'internet' (two separate events), appointments, and errands and life....
Well, we're going a different direction for the Friday Five.
The 5 Power-Is-Out, All-Is-Lost, End-Of-Civilization-As-We-Know-It Booklist:
- Alas, Babylon:
The definitive how-to survival book. If you are surviving a nuclear attack in a 1950's small town in Central Florida (Mount Dora).
"How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed."
To remind us that civilization did exist without electricity.
- The Count of Monte Cristo
To remind us that swashbuckle-adventuring happens best without electricity.
- Failure Is Not An Option and/or Moon Shot
The counter-measure to 'Babylon'. After all, we did win the space-race and manage to avoid thermonuclear war. #winning.
