"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

Sobre a minha bibliotecaMy 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.
