The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories by Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Well this book is exactly what the title suggests it is. It's a tiny book filled with wonderful little tiny stories. The book was spawned by Joseph Gordon-Levitt's project, Hitrecord, an online community that allows users to upload their art in numerous forms and profit from it while maintaining a community around it. This book taps into the tiny stories section of Hitrecord and is just a small sampling of what they have to offer on the website. I just loved this little book. It's such a gem. It features stories that pack a huge punch in sometimes just ten words or less. Stories that get to the heart of the human experience and feel much broader than what their small word count would imply. Accompanying the stories are perfect little illustrations that add so much more depth to the stories. And the book itself is packaged just perfectly. Something you want to just hold in your hands and hug. Definitely one I enjoyed. A wonderful gift from a wonderful friend :) Thanks, Nancy.
