"Must read" sections for the July 26 meeting

Our "long" read for the summer is "The Arabian Nights: Tales of 1,001 Nights." Our discussion of the book will be spread over the three summer meetings of June 28 (past), July 26 and August 30.  For our next meeting we will focus on nights 295 to 719 (per Lyons' translation).  The following are the suggested "must read" sections for our next meeting:

Sinbad the Sailor -- (Nights 536 to 566, pages 453-518 per Lyons' translation)
City of Brass -- (Nights 566 to 578, pages 518-546 per Lyons' translation)
Ajib and Gharib -- (Nights 624 to 680, pages 648-757 per Lyons' translation)

Links will be posted later to the text for those who don't have a book.

I'm not going to be able to provide the text from Arabian Nights for the "must read" sections for the next meeting.

I think the text from some older translations are available free on Project Gutenberg. I haven't had time to check if any the them have the so called "must read" sections.
