"When you want something, all the world conspires in helping you to achieve it," - Melchizedek, the Old King

The Alchemist by Brazillian best-selling author, Paulo Coelho is a book that i'd like to recommend you to read. I've just finished reading it and i'd say it's probably one of the best fiction that i've read in recent times. Such an inspiring book to read. (The quote above was taken from the book)
"(It tells the story of) Santiago, a simple boy who lives by travelling with his sheep, is suddenly enchanted by a dream he dreamt while resting under a tree, inside a ruined church. He dreamt that if he travels to the pyramids, he will find his fortune. So he went on for an uncharted journey and along the way encontered magical phenomenon, involving a King and then meeting The Alchemist himself. He also met the girl of his life, Fatima, on his way to Egypt.
When he got to the pyramids, he met a desert soldier who told him that two years ago, in the exact same spot where Santiago is, he dreamt that in a tree that has grown inside the ruins of a church in Spain, he will find his treasure. In that instant, Santigo realized that what he's been looking for all these years is right where he left it." - Allreaders.com

I'm currently looking for 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull' (by Richard Bach) and 'My Name is Red' (by Orhan Pamuk)? Anyone can help me find it? :)
