The Ultimate Well-Rounded Reading List - Page 3

A reading list of some of the most influential, important and greatest books of all time spanning thousands of years from ancient texts to modern classics and ranging from fictional plays, poems, short stories and novels to non-fictional topics covering philosophy, mathematics, economics, politics, film and much more.
The list and ordering of it is influenced a lot by the topics I enjoy in books that I have read or want to read, which accounts for some of the more unusual choices.
