This was a ton of fun to read!!! I‘ve always read excerpts of the stories and it was incredibly fulfilling to read the full extent of the stories foretold in Arabian Nights. It‘s always enlightening to read the collective stories of different cultures, especially outside the western normative.

Spectacular read! The imagery is vivid and the way it is read on audible... omg it makes you travel to distant lands and different times! Totally recommend, but not for a young audience as it contains some adult content.

DGRachel I may have to restart my audible membership... 8mo

In the chronicles of the ancient dynasty of the Sassanidae, who reigned for about four hundred years, from Persia to the borders of China, beyond the great river Ganges itself, we read the praises of one of the kings of this race, who was said to be the best monarch of his time. #TheArabianNights #firstline #openingline #book #books #funkopop #popvinyl #FreddyFunko #bookgeek #bookgeeks #bookgeeky #Classics #Fiction #Fantasy #ShortStories ❣️❣️❣️❣️

"For one thousand and one nights the story-telling continued, and by the end of that time the sultan had grown so fond of Scheherazade that he could not think of parting with her." Has anyone read this? I found this 1920 version published by The John C. Winston Company with illustrations from colored plates by Adelaide H. Bolton at a second hand store. Does anyone else get excited by old books? #loveytime #thearabiannights #classics #reading

This book is literally my entire childhood. I remember listening to these stories or reading them in Urdu. I didn't know they were Persian in origin but it's so amazing to be able to read them as an adult.
This is another find at my college's sale. So it cost me only a dollar. Can you believe it😍😩.

One of these days, I'll read it to see whether there is a #genieinabottle or a lamp in this version.* Too pretty not to use for this prompt though.

Scherazade is one of my all time favorite character. I love to hear foreign stories. This book is a collection of stories from Persia to China. One of my favorite stories from the book was about a mechanical horse. One of the reasons I love this book because it talks about a whole other world with magic and mystery. This a definite must read for anyone who enjoys the classics.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️#TheArabianNights #book #books #bookqueen #bookworm #booknerd

Apparently this is a thing to do..
@saguarosally #welcomelitten
1. My couch, under a warm blanket, somewhere in the USA ( i move a lot)
2. #Owlcrate society mentioned it. And it seemed fun and less work than a bookstagram.
3. Arabian Nights the short tv series made a movie in 2000. Shaharizad is my story telling idol.
4. Yes, two.

An interesting read. Short stories, well fairy tales really from the Middle East and Asia. I enjoyed them and they flow into one another. Some are quite short so it's easy to pick up and put down. One of the few classics I've enjoyed.

TrishB @LauraBrook @erzascarletbookgasm @batsy @quirkyreader I was amazed too! Sadly didn't buy as these would have been £50. Which isn't a lot for what they are - but I just didn't have £50 at this point! I may go back and try and buy the poetry one next week for £20 if it's still there. 2y

I enoyed these ancient tales of princes, princesses, genies, merchants, fantastic adventures, treasures, grand palaces. Common themes are cleverness or foolishness, love, revenge, jealousy, but above all, generosity and helping those in need is valued most in these stories.

Besides entertainment, we also get a picture of a rich, vibrant and educated culture way more sophisticated and world-wise than contemporary Europe. 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

#bookssetinasia #somethingforseptember #septemberphotochallenge so these are some of the books I have set in Asia! Battle Royale is my favorite from this list that I read! I put Anna Karenina in there because I couldnt remember which side of the mountains it took place on and a lot of Russia is in Asia.

As part of #funfriday, one of my favorite books growing up was the Arabian Nights. I loved the exotic stories of genies, flying carpets and hidden desert caves of jewels. Favs like: Ali Baba and the 40 thieves, Aladdin and the lamp and of course Sinbad. Still amazing!

LukkiAnn Yes indeed 🌴 3y
LibrarianJen Arabian Nights is one of my favorites too! 3y
