Anything by Tolkien or Michael Crichton. That covers a lot really.
I used to read more when I didn't work so much. I like thought
provoking books or sci-fi or fantasy. I'll add to this now, I've
started reading more books about military history and famous
leaders in history.
I listen to music all the time. Some of my favorite bands are
41, Our Lady Peace, Relient K, Yellowcard, Red Hot Chili
Peppers, Silversun Pickups, Chiodos, Muse, Radiohead, Goo Goo
Dolls, Postal Service and Bastille.
LOTR, Bourne, Star Wars, anything with Heath Ledger, Batman movies,
Sherlock Holmes, Serenity, Star Trek, and I'll get back to this
when I think of more.
My favorite shows have to be House, How I Met Your Mother, Person
of Interest, Castle, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Dr Who, BMS.
Basically a little bit of everything
