Repair manuals for your vehicle, and small engine repair in general.

A pocket ref, they're so useful i try to always have one nearby.
I agree, but I'd also pick up the following four books from BudK:
Living off the grid
Survival manual for military
Boobytraps
And last but not least your edible plants

Having all this stuff is all fine and dandy but knowing what to do with it is critical. I have many of the books mentioned, but I also have much of the knowledge contained within their pages. The stuff I don't keep in my head consists of things I can look up in a pcket reference.

I also have multiple HAM radios, handheld, mobile and base stations and a license to use it. Also many reference manuals on all aspects of radio operation. Communications are not imperative but would definitely be an advantage. Even in a major EMP event the older tube radios should not be affected unless they are being operated when the event happens. I maybe should have some of them buried away where an EMP cannot get to them.

What are the things you need to survive?

I print off alot of little "how too" off the internet. Like welding with car batteries, easy smoking of meat, purification of water, and simple moonshine.

It's a really great idea to print how-to guides, recipes, etc. - you can't depend on having access to your favorite survival websites in a SHTF situation. But it's also a good idea to try those how-to techniques now when times are good so you're not scrambling and messing things up when you're stressed.

Although I love reading and books, I have to say that having a library full of books makes less sense than having a library sized collection of PDF files on an external HDD.

Here's my idea. First, make a safe place to store the electronics. Safe from both EMP and Looters, thieves, etc... Then obtain a good sized storage device (I have a 1.5 TB drive that fits in my pocket) a large stack of DVD backups, a laptop to transfer files to and fro, and a viewing device (iPod, kindle, iPad, whatever).

To ensure power, have a solar charging unit for the viewing device and a solar system to power the laptop. Even a mini notebook will work, but you may not be able to access the DVDs on one of those.

I know I'm rambling, but I hope I was coherent enough. LoL.
