“From the department of Perfect Hipster Stocking Stuffers . . . Buy it for your brooding-artist cousin, but then selfishly decide to keep it for yourself.”
-Philadelphia City Paper
“Not just a coup for [hitRECord.org] but also an object lesson in how it works.”
-New York Times
“Told with haiku-like precision.”
“This tiny book is a winner . . . half short story collection, half communal poem.”

“Ingeniously illustrated . . . witty . . . meaningful.”
“HitRECord.org, where tens of thousands of contributors now bring their original music, text, illustrations and footage, lets people really “share” their work - not in the YouTube sense of simply posting something and hoping for an enthusiastic response, but in the true spirit of collaboration.”
“These clever little stories-really more like illustrated haikus-often pack a wallop despite their slender length, running the gamut from funny to poignant to just plain strange.”
-The Hollywood Reporter
“A victory for the enduring power and allure of physical, bound books.”
“Gordon-Levitt has culled quirky gems for Vol. 2. A handsome hardbound book full of wit, whimsy, and a little wisdom.”
“A brand new collection of moving (and funny!) stories from the hitRECord family and It Books.”
