Some will be straight how-to survival books, but most will be dystopian and apocolypitic fiction. Which, I know most of you are huge fans of.
And your fist Book Club episode features Chris Weatherman aka Angery American. He’s the author of the Surviving Home series of books. There will also be a special offer to get a free audio book.
