About meA yogi & Tea Monger trying to fund my love of books through yoga and tea (

"If you are not reading and writing poetry, you are suffering from linguistic malnutrition."
—Philip Howard

"I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go into the library and read a good book." --Groucho Marx

I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library. - Jorge Luis Borges

"Salgo, saciado de puertas y calles,
A buscar algo que allí no perdí."
I set out, fed up with doorways and streets,
to search for something I never lost there.
-- Pablo Neruda, from The Separate Rose

"Translations, apparently, are either beautiful or faithful, but never both. A translation is the original text’s wife. If too pretty, the translation must be cheating on her husband, the text. If faithful, the translation must not be very pretty."--Harvard University Press General Editor for the Humanities Sharmila Sen

About my libraryMy library is an eclectic mix of books and topics but the one common thread is that I almost always want readable books. Meaning I seldom buy a book that I don't intend to read or that is physically not readable. There are (of course!) some exceptions. I may have several editions of favorite books or authors, especially if there are several different illustrators or other unique features of an edition.

GroupsBook Care and Repair, Fine Press Forum, Folio Society devotees, George Macy devotees, Proust, ReJoyce, Sitting on a pumpkin..., South American Fiction-Argentine Writers

Favorite authorsRoberto Bolaño, Joseph Conrad, Ursula K. Le Guin, James Joyce, Morgan Llywelyn, Gabriel García Márquez, Patricia A. McKillip, Michael Moorcock, Pablo Neruda, Marcel Proust, Hyemeyohsts Storm, Henry David Thoreau, J. R. R. Tolkien, Howard Zinn (Shared favorites)
