One of the sites that I hit every day without fail is Homestead Survival for tips and their every day free (at the time of the posting) Kindle books.
Some of the tips are extremely simple but absolutely brilliant - for example: keeping small amounts of spices in free sturdy waterproof see-through resealable packages. Are you ready for this?
Go over and check it out and look at their free books. Some of them are fairly short how-to books, but I have picked up several full length novels. Don't have a Kindle? Don't trip, there's also a download at the end of the books post so you can read them on your Nook or PC.
Thanks to Woody for turning me on to the site.
