The Amulet of Samarkand
No, I didn't read this because of the title, even though that's a fair guess. I mostly read it because I happened to browse into it at the library and I've been meaning to read it for a long time. I liked it, and I plan to continue with the series with the next two books sitting on hold for me at the library. I did think it was a touch long-winded in places, but that also could have been that I read parts of it while scanning books and I was switching back and forth a lot. But it's an interesting story with good characters and fun to read.
