Greatest Books Top 500 - September 2020 Update

Here is my annual spring(S)/autumn(N) update of "The Greatest Books". Even more colourful icons than last year's version!
For some books I have included the recommended translations from my challenge "The 100 Best Novels in Translation". Look forward in the near future to instalments featuring works beyond these 500.
