I got a wonderful response with over 100 replies, and nearly 170 recommendations. I’ve decided to compile them here, in no particular order, so that you can find recommendations for books and authors other people thought were worth reading. Yes, there seems to be several related to pandemics, sci-fi disasters, and so on, but hey, that’s a sign of the times. Plenty of classics. A great diversity of topics, categories, and authors. Thanks all, for the suggestions.
