Wish List: The Tiny Book Of Tiny Stories

I first heard about The Tiny Book Of Tiny Stories from Joseph Gordon-Levitt tweets way back when the book is still plan to be released.  I am really intrigue about this book so I start following news about the publication, reading samples and watching videos about it. When hitRECord.org finally announced the printing of the book I am excited to get one. Though unfortunately for me, the book is only available  at that time from hitRECord online store. I waited for awhile hoping that the book will be released via international book sellers that offer shipping here in the Philippines such as Amazon and Barnes and Nobles. After months of waiting I lost track and hope. With so many books to track I really forgot about this book. It’s not even available from goodreads at that time so I can’t even add it in my To-Buy or To-Be-Read list. But today I found out that the book is officially released two days ago in the US and it is available from international book stores like Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Trying to push my luck, I also tried to inquire from local book stores for the availability of this book but so far they don’t have any idea about this one. But I don’t care much about that, I’m still feeling lucky today because the book is also available from Book Depository. Which means I can surely get a copy soon. But for now I’m pushing this one to my wishlist, hoping I can get one this coming holiday. Afterall, it’s not advisable to order this season because of the crazy delivery system around the world this holiday.

Original Design of The Tiny Book Of Tiny Stories when it first came out from hitRECord.org

Book Description:

From hitRECord, the immensely popular open collaborative production company, and its founder, Golden Globe-nominated actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, comes The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 1.

“The universe is not made of atoms; it’s made of tiny stories.”

To create The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 1, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, known within the hitRECord community as RegularJOE—directed thousands of collaborators to tell tiny stories through words and art. With the help of the entire creative collective, Gordon-Levitt culled, edited and curated over 8,500 contributions into this finely tuned collection of original art from 67 contributors. Reminiscent of the 6-Word Memoir series, The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 1 brings together art and voices from around the world to unite and tell stories that defy size.

    1. This is definitely a must have, glad you added it to your list too. Hopefully we got our copy soon. I was informed yesterday that one of the local book stores here finally ordered copies of this book. I’m just waiting for the books to arrived. Hopefully before the year ends I have a copy already. I’m really excited for this.

      The Post office is really crazy this holiday season.. Most of the books that I ordered from Book Depository are still MIA. I’m worried that I won’t get them before Christmas. Most of those books are for gift to friends. If I don’t get them before this holiday I’ll end up with multiple copies for some titles and I have to do my last minute Christmas shopping for alternative gifts.
