Arabian Nights again

 So far I've read the first 9 stories of the Arabian Nights collection off of ELF. It's interesting coming back to read these again after years of not doing so. I read many of the Arabian Nights stories when I was younger. I owned the book, which was a gift, and I read several stories before bed every night. Now, I don't remember a lot of them. What's interesting is that the first time I read these stories they were in Turkish. I only wish I had a better memory for the times, or at least to book so that I could comment as to whether I had different experiences while reading the stories in different languages. 

Tonight, I found myself wanting to skip and read a later story, then again I remembered trying to do this when I was younger and finding myself lost and confused.
