It's asking about the last book you read "for pleasure".

Technically the last few books I've read are textbooks, so non fiction.

Backed by archeology could be realistic fiction

We can't hide. However, buying some time to get organized is good. Running to an unknown environment is probably not too helpful. We can rebuild together. We can get through it together. We can do more together. A dirt bike is still a good mobile fuel efficient option though.

Libraries have gone digital as well. I get most of my books digitally from the library

Pleasurable nonfiction. Taking an interest in what this nation was founded on to learn more about where it's going. Not too promising so far.

Killing Kennedy similar style but not quite as good as Killing Lincoln.

American Sniper, it's about the best SEAL sniper ever Chris Kyle.

The call of cthulu, a good man is hard to find, and the curious case of benjamin button are a few of a long list of good short stories

@Mr.Spock, sounds like a course equally fascinating and deeply disturbing. In Mein Kampf, you'll read the unmistakeable seeds of hate, that culminated in your course study of the Holocaust. Could talk for days, but stay on track, and read for yourself what a twisted, yet compelling figure he was.

The bible has poetry, which would be fiction, but when it cites historical events, archeology has always backed it up, with one possible exception.

I'm not a big book reader but when I do it no-fiction. Biographies, history stuff like that.

There was a gal in our book club whose most frequent comment about fiction books was that they weren't realistic and/or believable...hope she found a non-fiction book group to make her happy!

Gonzo- Mein Kemph is next. Dreading it. I would have read it years ago, but I have a bit of a soft-hearted aversion.
I took a Humanities course in college devoted entirely to the Holocaust. Detailed study during that semester, and watched a LOT of footage most folks never see. Gut wrenching.

I am considering getting plugged into our local FEMA chapter and getting involved.

I don't think the general population really knows what to do. I am thinking tsunami across whole coast, EMP wiping radios and tv communication or something that creates fear, confusion and panic.

ladyniner81- 'good?' Ummm... No.
It was educational.
And honestly, much of it makes sense on the surface. This is what Marx & Engels intended. Appeal to those with only basic conceptual understanding who do little actual historic research.
Bad stuff with openly stated insidious objectives.

Talking about fiction and reality, what should we do in a serious disaster that wipes out homes and work? Subconsciously we are told to get on a dirt bike with extra fuel and head for Mexico. Logically, volunteering to help work with marshal law seems more practical. I don't think we have a plan.
