My shelves don't always reflect my reading interests. I like crime thrillers, fantasy, historical romance (not too much chest heaving though) and some young adult fiction (don't judge me).
Chocolate is wonderful, though I've no ideas why folks like to ruin it by putting nuts and fruits and toffees and such in it, a little caramel is ok. I love finding interesting new children's books for my young toddler. In addition to reading, I enjoy piecing batik quilts for friends and family, though the binding of them is not nearly so fun. My favorite colors are blues/greens/purples. I am always looking for fun new canvas tote bags to haul groceries and the like. I find postcards to be more fun than traditional birthday cards; they give such beautiful views of places I've never seen.

Oops, stopped keeping track a while back. Try to do better in 2007
The books I've read so far(2006) are not necessarily a true reflection of my reading taste. At the end of 2005 a room mate was moving out and left several boxes of books behind. I wanted to release them all, but feel guilty releasing a book I've not read. All of the para-romances fall into this category. That's not to say they were all bad. Some were ok or even entertaining, some were pure, unadulterated cheese. The historical fiction and crime/thrillers are more my taste.
