"Tomo" is also "volume". For example, in an encyclopaedia, each volume is "un tomo". The word comes from the Greek "tomos", meaning "section". From this word, you have in English tomography (a graph of a section of the body), atom (that cannot be cut into sections), and, of course, "tome", with the nearly same meaning as "tomo" in Spanish.

Hi Deedee. Welcome to the forum. grin

The verb is "tomar" (to take). "Tomo" is the first person singular of the verb.
