Ofcourse Alchemist is everyone's favorite but I like other work by Coelho. The Element by Ken Robinson is also a great read.
I am a big movie buff and there are so many that I can't name them all here but few are The Sixth Sense, House of Sand and Fog, Brave Heart, Beautiful Mind, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Forest Gump, Pursuit of Happ(y)ness etc.
There is a long list of shows, I try to stay away from them as once I start a good show I end up watching seasons after seasons. Seindfeld, Perfect Strangers, Golden Girls, The office(US version), Big Band Theory, Curb your enthusiasm, How I met your Mother.
I may not have a very refined taste in music but there is a lot from every genre that pleases my ear so its definitely eclectic. I have CDs that have mish mash of Radiohead, greenday, guns and roses, u2, metallica, pink floyd, evanescence, harry chapin, louis armstrong. Its so broad that it is pointless to name them all. I listen to a song somewhere and if I like it I add it to the hodgepodge of a collection that I have.
