I really enjoy reading Classic Books, and I'd also like some titles that I'd be able to put down in my CV.

I've studied Metamorphoses, and the Iliad and I've read The Letters of the Younger Pliny, The Odyssey and Euripedes' Medea.

Thank you.

What are you interested in? Luciliou has already given you some drama, but it's worth doing some history and philosophy too in the interest of well roundedness. Seneca's letters, Livy, Sallust, Plato's Republic, any of Cicero's court cases, are all essential reading.

If you want to be a little more obscure you can have a look at Lucan's Pharsalia (epic poem about the civil war, rather gory), Vegetius' De Re Militari (military manual, essential if you're at all interested in military matters), and the poetry of Sappho (lesbian female love poet) are all less read.
