The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus
Cybernetic Revelation: Deconstructing Artificial Intelligence by J.D. Casten
Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics by Immanuel Kant (it’s significantly less dense than his more famous work The Critique of Pure Reason, but it still contains many of his unique epistemological discussion)

Philosophy Blogs
Footnotes to Plato and Scientia Salon – both of these are by Massimo Piglucci. Although he doesn’t update Scientia Salon anymore, I still recommend reading through the old posts to find gems such as when he thoroughly devastates Neil deGrasse Tyson’s views on the philosophy of science.
Talking Philosophy – really interesting philosophical analysis of pop culture events.
Lieter Reports – the website itself is somewhat daunting to navigate, but it provides some insight into the very academic side of philosophy.

Non-Philosophy Books
A Tempest by Aimé Césaire (a post-colonial retelling of Shakespeare’s play The Tempest)
Imperium by Robert Harris (or, if you can read classical Latin, Cicero’s original writings from his prosecution of Verres can be found here)
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
The Brothers K by David James Duncan (not to be confused with The Brothers Karamzov by Fyodor Dostoevsky!)
Against Empathy by Paul Bloom

For some wonderful Latin poetry, I would recommend translations of Catullus. He can be vulgar at times, but his work (for example Catullus 5 and Catullus 101) is so emotionally rich.
