The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Vol. 3 by Joseph Gordon-Levitt
The stories are not all cute and cuddly. Some are dark but each one tells a story or makes a statement. Like for example: This overwhelming desire to be close to you directly conflicts with my intense fear of people.
From my ship, adrift, I spied you. And I thought you were an island. Alas, you were an iceberg, Aug 19, Kirsty rated it it was amazing Shelves: Beautiful, thoughtful, and creative. A wonderful little read. Apr 06, Emma rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love these tiny stories so much.

The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 1
It was refreshing, it was emotional, it was touching, it was stimulating. I'm so glad our editor gave us a copy of this book and I got the chance to read it! I really really loved it!

Jul 22, Luciana Darce rated it it was amazing. Sim, eu li tudo na livraria mesmo. E me apaixonei. Mais tarde descobri, para minha surpresa, que The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories era um projeto colaborativo feito pela internet e pensado pelo ator Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Quero mais! View 1 comment. Nov 09, Angelc rated it it was amazing Shelves: I just love these tiny books so much! If you haven't read one yet, you are missing out on a lot of fun!
I may still like the first volume of Tiny Stories the best, but this one had some real gems. I enjoyed this one more than the second book. I love that the tiny stories can be interpreted in so many different ways by different readers. Some of the stories really resonate for me personally, and I'm sure that different ones would impact other readers the most.
Since they are so short, they can be I just love these tiny books so much! Since they are so short, they can be profound for varying reasons depending on who is reading them. I can even see the stories meaning something different if I went back and read them again. This little book is perfect stocking stuffer for the person on your list who has everything! The only downfall of the book is that I would like it to be longer with more stories!!
It's over way too quick! I will just have to wait patiently for Volume 4! I love this series, they are teeny tiny books just full of insight into everyday life.
Jun 15, Elari rated it it was amazing Shelves: It will pierce through antique wreckages and live beasts, stagger through quicksands and deserts, nauseate in cancers and starvations, drown in a whale's belly, suffocate in the void of space, grope about the cosmic horizon, stray awhirl and twist as it goes round and round to find its way.
It will die a little at times. Then one day, with the knife of forlorn hope still pressed against its woolly jugular, it "One day, I will unwind the fabric of my brain and make a thread out of my mental life.

Nov 13, Kelly Hager rated it it was amazing.
This is one of my absolute favorite series and the fact that it comes out this time of year makes it almost like a Christmas present to myself or, just as accurately, Harper Collins' and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Christmas present to meso thank you!
I absolutely love these little glimpses into people's lives and personalities. The little illustrations are absolutely beautiful. Sometimes sweet This is one of my absolute favorite series and the fact that it comes out this time of year makes it almost like a Christmas present to myself or, just as accurately, Harper Collins' and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Christmas present to meso thank you!
Sometimes sweet and funny, sometimes sad but always lovely. My favorite ones: It seems like in every volume, I find a few that give me things to think about and several more see the ones posted above that just really resonate. Like its predecessors, this book is perfect. Highly recommended. Jan 02, Ti rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Short of It: Tiny in size but the creativity contained within this small volume never ceases to amaze me.
The Rest of It: Once again, hitRECord, founded by Joseph Gordon-Levitt has put together another collection of amazing stories which happen to be only one or two pages long. The beauty of this project is that anyone can join the community and submi The Short of It: The beauty of this project is that anyone can join the community and submit their work for a chance to be included in the next volume. This is a fun book and would make a nice gift.
I have all three and they do look great on my shelf. Most are simple black and white line drawings but there are shots of color here and there. I really enjoy them and love that artists everywhere, have the opportunity to be published through this project. For more reviews, visit my blog: Book Chatter. View all 3 comments.

See for yourself. Works of art such as this are best experienced directly, as each individual will take from it what she will. This is a beautiful example of collaboration, and I must hunt down the first two volumes.

A flutter. It made me smile. Not all of them have the quiet power that this one has, but many of them do. Each is a sentence or two of story, accompanied by an illustration of some kind. Some of them are funny. Some of Some time ago, I found this tiny little story online and it gave me a weird but wonderful feeling.
Some of them are dark. Some of them are romantic. They're really quite delightful to read. Given everyone's love of Sarah Andersen and the short, meme-style poetry that's in vogue these days, I'm really surprised more people haven't read these books. Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Dec 07, Lauren RM rated it really liked it.
Page-length stories that range from endearing to clever to heart-wrenching, all collaborations. I'm just a little bit in love. I pre ordered it. I got it in the mail. I opened it. I read it instead of eating lunch. Then I tore up the box and stuffed the cardboard pieces into business reply envelopes from credit card offers so the companies have to give more money to the postal service. I'm excited about every step in this process! Feb 12, Jenbebookish rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a surprise!
It was actually quite lovely, and cute, and witty and dark, all at once. There are suicidal eggs, left out elements the element of surprise from the cool kid table of elements There was a little girl arguing with a little boy that it is HER-O, not HE-RO as he claims. There were dark ominous creatures and beautiful trees.
It was whimsical and clever, and I am glad I stumbled across this in my Goodreads perusing. Jan 09, Marnie rated it really liked it.
I love this.

I was going to do this review like my other micro stories review but when I started marking stories I was marking every page so I was like "that's no good" so I was going to open to a random page and give you that story, but I got to the last page and oh, that is the story I am going to share with you: If I read our story backwards, it's about how I un-broke your heart, and then we were happy until one day, you forgot about me completely.
Jan 24, Jenn rated it liked it Shelves: This is a fairly twee and in many ways adorable book produced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt's hitRECord open-collaborative creative arts company. The book's cover boasts that it features "67 contributors from the 8, contributions on the Tiny Stories collaboration on hitRECord.
The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 3
The concept itself is to take online submissions, under online user names like wirrow the main architect This is a fairly twee and in many ways adorable book produced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt's hitRECord open-collaborative creative arts company.
The concept itself is to take online submissions, under online user names like wirrow the main architect and Metaphorest and RegularJoe the handle for Gordon-Levitt himself and publish them. The concept is more intriguing than the book, really, which is not to say it doesn't have its pleasures. The drawings and caption-like stories give the book a childish feel, even if a few of the lines -- "Thunder always let lightning come first! The overall theme of Tiny Book is one of being -- and trying to be -- delightful, and the book wouldn't feel out of place on a shelf of slightly older children's stories.
Whenever he tried to say 'honey,' it came out all funny. Basically, it's a little hard for outsiders to fully appreciate, but I'd guess that the 67 contributors and their thousands of other friends probably get two or three levels of enjoyment out of seeing their work in print. A new edition -- an annual edition -- is supposed to be printed again next year.
It's not likely a book that would have seen the market without the support of a well-known artist, a fact I'd feel a bit more callous about mentioning if RegularJoe didn't manage to show up as at least a co-contributor in 12 of the 70 some contributions throughout the book. As vanity projects go, though, this is a particularly cute one, and the concept of encouraging further collaboration and creativity online is admirable. Two tiny thumbs up. I received this book for free to review it.
Oct 28, Lisa Hura rated it it was amazing. The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Actually, the great beginning was the end paper.
Then, there are the stories — they are truly tiny. Maybe a sentence or two, with a drawing to go with them. They are sad and funny and wonderful. My favorite, which I have stolen for a tagline on my favorite forum, reads: The book is from hitRECord, a collaborative art project.
The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Vol. 1
Jul 28, Sarah Al Qassimi rated it really liked it Shelves: A tiny review fit for this tiny book: Aug 03, Man rated it liked it. I had very high expectations on this book, not because of the name printed on the front Joseph Gordon-Levitt that is , but because I love the plain idea of a collaborate book consisting of works by different people.
I genuinely believe this idea is a good way of sharing art, because it shows that the range of imagination is so vast. And the first sentence is just fantastic: Although I didn't read the psysical book I did watch the rea I had very high expectations on this book, not because of the name printed on the front Joseph Gordon-Levitt that is , but because I love the plain idea of a collaborate book consisting of works by different people. Although I didn't read the psysical book I did watch the read along on Youtube here.
And I must be honest - some stories were really great therefore the rating , but too many were 'meh' or - to put it bluntly - not that good at all. So yes, the variyng quality is my biggest objection. But overall I thought it was charming, well-blended and witty.
I'll definitely check out the second book. If I read our story backwards, it's about how I un-broke your heart, and then we were happy until one day, you forgot about me forever. The tiny stories look beautiful alongside the imaginative and original illustrations.
My favourite Tiny Story is above, and my second favourite is here: His hands were weak and shaking from carrying far too many books from the bookshop. It was the best feeling. I didn't read this tiny If I read our story backwards, it's about how I un-broke your heart, and then we were happy until one day, you forgot about me forever.

I read it through a video book, yes a video not audio , thanks to Jeffrey! Here are my Favorite Quotes: But her husband kept coming home. Me either. Let's can't sleep together. Jan 05, Ti rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Short of It: A short, snappy little book filled with creativity. The Rest of It: When I first heard about this little gem, I knew I had to read it for myself.
The stories are only one or two pages long. Some are humorous, some of thought-provoking but the real challenge here is telling a story in just on The Short of It: Some are humorous, some of thought-provoking but the real challenge here is telling a story in just one or two pages complete with illustrations. The book itself is very well done. It would make a fabulous gift and honestly speaking, the writing is pretty clever, too. I also enjoyed the illustrations. When it came in the mail, The Girl took off with it thinking it was for her.
She read about half of the stories and then asked if she could keep it. Uh, no. Often, we want to be creative but the process often seems too difficult or overwhelming. If you are an artist who would like to contribute works for volume 2, check out the web site.

This book is a collection of SHORT stories each story is only a line or two paired with a variety of beautiful illustrations Joseph Gordon-Levitt has not written any of these stories, rather he is the director of the project.
More information about the project can surely be found at hitrecord. The wonder of this collection is that each story fee I was initially drawn to this book by the cover and its small, compact size and, let's be honest, by Joseph Gordon-Levitt's name on the cover. The wonder of this collection is that each story feels like it captures the essence of a longer story or novel with just a few words.
