I am sure this has been covered elsewhere, but i want to be sure before buying a volume. I want to start reading FABLES, and there are different opinions on where to start reading.

Some suggest to begin with 1001 Nights of Snowfall and others suggest to begin with Fables: Legends in Exile (issues 1-5)

I am a huge Sandman fan and i also enjoy Hellblazer, Watchmen, some Batman GNs (like the Killing Joke, The Long Halloween, Year One) and also Superman (the man of steel). Would you recommend FABLES for me?

Start with Legends in Exile. 1001 Nights of Snowfall is very much a side-story, one that will be better appreciated once you've become familiar with the inhabitants of Fabletown.

I love Fables, and encourage every comics fan to read it.

I started with the first one which is a good story and introduction to some of the characters so I'd also suggest starting from issue 1.
