Book Challenge Update

So I have just finished reading Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know by Hamilton Wright Mabie. It was nice to revisit childhood and bit and hear the old tales. There were many that I had heard (Snow White, Red Riding Hood) but then there were ones that I had not read (The History of Abi Baba, and of the Forty Robbers Killed by One Slave), or had only heard some really degenerate form of (The Story of Aladdin; or, The Wonderful Lamp).

8/30 books read
