Greatest Books Top 500 - September 2019 Update - Page 2

"The Greatest Books" as at 1st September 2019. For some books I have included recommended translations from my challenge "The 100 Best Novels in Translation".
To be frank, my main purpose for compiling this list was to create a checklist for myself, but you should still enjoy this updated challenge.
