Sinbad, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Alladin and his lamp, plust many more. It's hard to beat all these great stories in one collection. Read this one for sure!

I didn't know what I was getting into when I started reading this book. I had heard a few references to the Arabian Nights, mainly that it was a highly scandalous book. That's it. So, of course, I had to read it. Arabian Nights is a book of Arabian fairy tales. There's genii (singular = genius. that'll save you confusion later) in basically every story. But, when I started reading, I couldn't stop. Arabian fairy tales are nothing like those of the West [despite what the preface says]. They're awesome! I would definitely recommend this book.
