The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings trilogy. You can’t go wrong with Tolkien.

The Wheel of Time. A solid meter and a half of fantasy saga.

a song of ice and fire, the series that game of thrones is based on, is great, but it doesn’t (and probably never will) have an ending

You can go to a library and look for book series with many books ;) Then just try the first one and if you like it you have many like it to read.

Marx’s Capital, and Lenin’s selected works (alternatively collected but that’s 55 books while selected are only 2).

If you live in Europe and have no power they will also explain why there is no power XD

Legends of the Condor Heroes; and Return of the Condor Heroes for fiction

Since there’s no power, one would get so desperate that they’d read anything; you can read A History Of Western Philosophy by W. T. Jones and Robert J. Frogelin made out of several 500-page volumes

“Introduction to Algorithms” is pretty long.

ISBN-13: 978-0262033848

It depends on the gente you like I guess… If you are a bit into Thriller check our Dan Brown books with Robert Langdon: you won’t regret it!

Three Body Problem Series.

1st and 2nd are great. 3rd is incredibly disappointing. There is also the approved 4th book written by different author, which is so-so (especially first half), but at least give some ending.

Serpent in the Sky is my go to when powers out. It’s filled with highly fascinating facts about ancient Egypt and the seemingly unknown application of well known artifacts!
