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.
