I think I'm making this thread mostly for me (so I can keep track of the books that I think are phenomenal) and for other bibliophiles, as well. Tell me if this is posted on the wrong section. I'm only recommending books that I've actually read, and the books that I'm proud to recommend. Of course, I've read more than a thousand books but half of them are just so-so in content and writing style. If the books you like aren't here, it's either I don't like them, I haven't read them yet, or I've forgotten about them and I just need to update this list. These are all at the top of my head, anyway, so I'll be updating this thread every once in a while in case I remember some really awesome books that should definitely be recommended. I've arranged this by genre and author's last name. Not all of these are fiction. Just in case you want to pass the time and you have nothing else to do during quarantine, maybe you can check them out. I know I'm about to go crazy. I was thinking of creating a google drive and upload some of my PDFs but let's see if I become motivated on doing it. I think I'll edit this and include the link here one of these days.
