    It's a Puffin Classics edition, so I'm assuming that it will be more grown up than the Disney version. *lol* Or at least, I hope so.

    My bf's mother bought this lovely vintage edition, but it was incredibly Victorianized.

    I took an Islamic Studies/Religious Studies class at UT Austin titled "The Arabian Nights."

    These are the 3 main books we used:
    1. Amazon.com: Tales from the Thousand and One Nights (Penguin Classics) (9780140442892): Anonymous, William Harvey, N. J. Dawood: Books
    2. Amazon.com: The Arabian Nights (New Deluxe Edition) (9780393331660): Muhsin Mahdi, Husain Haddawy: Books
    3. Amazon.com: The Arabian Nights: A Companion (9781860649837): Robert Irwin: Books

    When All Hell Breaks Loose -Cody Lundin

    I thought this might be an important book to read. I've read other survival books when I was a teenager but this seems to be the only one specifically for the urban environment. Can't hurt to be prepared!

    The Line Between: stories by Peter S. Beagle

    Can't wait to read this one. In the introduction he talks about telling his children that if they turn their heads fast enough they can look into their own ears.

    I am about to enter the world of the coffee shop where I am assuming murder and mayhem will soon erupt. I'm looking forward to a good cozy mystery. :)
