If you are into philosophy, here are a couple of recent books I'd highly recommend:

I'd also suggest the Peter Adamson series, "A History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps." It is currently up to 5 volumes with the fifth volume, "Classical Indian Philosophy", due to be released June 1, 2020.

Of course, philosophy covers many things. I am currently reading Simon Wiesenthal's "The Sunflower: On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness" which includes Wiesel's original story plus contributions from contributions from the Dalai Lama, Harry Wu, Cynthia Ozick, Primo Levi. Iit is a fascinating look into the question of what would "I/you" do in the circumstances.
