A number of you asked me for a list of books to read during lockdown, mostly novels and fiction (like Plato, right?). Here is a list I drew up maybe fifteen (?) years ago, with only slight revisions since. I feel a current list might be quite different, but actually the early list is perhaps closer to most of your tastes? Here it is. It starts with classics and then goes through more recent novels maybe up through 2000 or so.
