Aesop's Fables
Aesop's Fables | Aesop
Aesop's Fables or the Aesopica is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and story-teller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BCE. The characters of fables and tales are usually animals who act and talk just like people whilst retaining their animal traits. Each one of Aesop's fables has a lesson, or moral, to teach to children - just like a parable or allegory.

I‘ve heard or read a lot of these stories over the years, but I learned I‘m much more familiar with the ones that include animals rather than people or gods as characters. Some of the stories have decent reminders for life, but too many of them seemed to say you cannot change your lot in life.

My #Reading1001 #TBRakedown book for this month is Aesop‘s Fables. These very short stories are perfect for a quick end of the day read with #SerialReader. #1001books

tangled_mind I can never get enough of Aesop's fables. I've always loved them. 2y
Daisey @tangled_mind I find it interesting that although I recognize most of them, the ones I don‘t usually involve human characters. 2y

I had to read this one for the #1001books list but I have to admit it bored the hell out of me. I‘m sure it‘s a masterpiece which influenced many later books but listening to all those short stories (many of which I knew already because I am old and wise 😂) just was too much. I am glad I had the lovely and beautiful landscape of upstate New York to enjoy in the mean time.

(Pic: Aurora, Finger Lakes, New York)

AshleyHoss820 I personally enjoyed it but mostly because it gave me major nostalgia, which helps. 😂 I also read a few stories then read something else. All at once would be a bit tedious. 😊 3y
Redwritinghood Oh, I remember reading these as a kid. Not sure I would enjoy them as much as an adult. 3y
Kalalalatja I feel you! I read them all too close together, and they all got jumbled together in my mind 😅 3y

BarbaraBB @AshleyHoss820 I read them in between other books but even that didn‘t help! 3y
BarbaraBB @Redwritinghood I read many of them as a kid too, a completely different experience! @Kalalalatja exactly. And I think Andersen‘s fairytales are way better, for kids as well as adults! 3y
AshleyHoss820 @BarbaraBB Oh, man!! That sucks! Some things are better left in our childhood, sometimes! 😄😄😄 3y

The North Wind and The Sun, one of the many fables by Aesop, is about the Wind and the Sun bet on which can force a man to remove a coat. We know who won!
Moral of the story: ‘Gentleness and kind persuasion win where force and bluster fail.‘

Ha! This was one of my favorite fables when I was a child. I thought the fox got what he deserved for being so rude and inconsiderate. Love the illustrations :) (Macmillan Collector‘s Library edition)

There‘re many fables involving foxes in Aesop‘s Fables, all of them morally interesting, and many depict the fox as a #cunning and sly animal.
The Crow and The Fox, The Stork and The Fox, The Fox and the Cock.

These are the only fables I‘m familiar with. I used to own and read from these two Ladybird editions when I was little.
Anyone remember reading these?

Stolen from @Crowcrumbs I read slower than average and I like it that way.

QuietlyLaura Me, too! I had a hard time learning to read as a child due to Anxiety. Nevertheless, I persisted! I love reading at my own pace and reveling in a story's nuances. 5y
Puredragonstar I used to read fast. But I just don‘t have time anymore. Now I read slowly and take my time. 🙋🏻‍♀️ 5y

speljamr Definitely me. I've just never been the fastest reader. But I'm ok with that. 5y
Redwritinghood Yep! Over here 🙋🏻‍♀️ 5y
britt_brooke I think I‘m on the slower side. 5y
cherinium Me! I've always been slow! If I try to read too fast, I don't comprehend anything. I'd rather take my time and be sure I'm understanding and enjoying the language. 5y
Meeko93 That's me! I only read about 4-5 books a month. 5y
Ddzmini Sometimes it depends on the book, there are books you want to enjoy and I read them really slow while others I can read in 8 hours or less it just depends on mood and book content 😝📖📚😳🤪 5y
Ddzmini I‘m also dyslexic so up until the eighth grade I couldn‘t read so that‘s why now I can go fast and slow 😝 5y
Ddzmini Sorry for so many post but I guess that‘s my super power now 5y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I find that I read classics and literary fiction slower than a romance or YA book. It must come down to the writing styles. 5y

Crowcrumbs @Smarkies that is my #1 complaint about being a slow reader- esp on Litsy! I want to add everyone else‘s books to my list but I can‘t keep up. 😂 5y
Crowcrumbs @cherinium my thoughts exactly! 5y
tomes4gnomes Well, it just warms my heart to meet my fellow slow readers. 🤝🐌 5y
LisaJo Yay!!! There are others out there. I was once told by a reading teacher that the reason I read slowly was because I read every word. I said to her, I was in the six grade, are you not supposed to read every word? Why would the author put a word there if they didn‘t want you to read it. The teacher sent a letter home to my parents in regards to my flippant comment. My parents said they were proud of me, but not to tell my teacher. 5y
Paula3 What my mother calls speed reading I call skimming. I read all the sentences, if they are good, I'll read them twice 😊 5y
Kaye I don‘t know what category I‘m in. My reading is Herky-Jerky lately, with lots of starts and stops. If I find a great book, I read faster, but then I might find a bunch that are duds, so I read a few pages and toss them. So I‘m fast and slow. 5y
QuoteQueen Yeah I'm DEFINITELY in that club. I timed it once and read about 24pages/hour in an average sized novel. 😬 Needless to say, between that and life, I will be lucky if I reach my goal of 25 books this year...unless I add the kids books I read to my 7 & 3 year old. @Rcoco we have similar goals! 5y
Palimpsest Me! I‘m not ashamed. Yes, there are tons of books I want to read that I want to make time for, but I also like to savor books. I‘ve written a few short stories (nothing published) and I know how long it sometimes takes to craft those sentences. Plus, I read a lot of classics or non-fiction which I believe deserves more time. Reading the Iliad now. I like to annotate and I stop for that, too. I read tons of children‘s books with my 2 year old also! 5y
minkyb Me and totally fine with it! 5y

I‘ve paused my timer and am taking a break from the #24in48 #Readathon and I‘ve just finished my second book during this challenge. This reread was short. The stories themselves hold up, but this was not a good quality recording. The narrator was ok, but it was tinny sounding. I wouldn‘t recommend this particular version to anyone. I listened to this on Audible.
@24in48

Mollyanna I hate that tinny sound. To me it is very distracting. 5y
