Merit Badge Books on Kindle

The BSA has started putting out more of the Merit Badge Books on Amazon via Kindle. You can find all the Eagle Required pamphlets and several of the elective pamphlets now. You don’t have to have a Kindle device to use these, as you can also purchase and read via a kindle app, or via a browser on the Amazon Cloud Reader.

The BSA also publish the first few pages, along with resources, of every merit badge in PDF form on their own website. These PDFs are free, but do not have full content. They do have the most up to date requirements and some resource links, which for the most part can be used to track down a large part of the material needed to earn the badge.
