My #Aladdin pick for the #FairytaleReadingChallenge. This wasn‘t my favorite collection of tales but I‘m glad I finally got around to reading it. This edition is nicely illustrated. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is probably the classic that's been on my TBR list the longest. We've always intended to get an Arabic copy, so my husband could brush up on the language while we read. At least I have an idea for his Christmas present now! #junebookbugs

Time to slow down the pace by reading this bloody thick block 😂

This is pretty wordy,but the stories are good enough that if you find that off putting consider finding a more modern translation. If you like Disney, you'll want to try "Aladdin," and if you're a classical music fan, try the stories that inspired the Shahrazad suite.
