I am looking for some engineering books. I am not picky just any kind of engineering books. I want to learn on my own and figured maybe someone on here would have some.

What you want to look for are the Engineering Handbooks (Electrical Engineers Handbook, Mechanical Engineers Handbook, Chemical Engineers Handbook, etc.).  They can usually be had for $3 to $5 and break down the information you would need into bite size chunks.  They won't teach you engineering but they can help you figure out what you're interested in.  Unfortunately, the books are pretty big and just too expensive to mail.
