A great read to start the week “filled with whimsical, colorful illustrations, plus cheerful random prompts, thoughts, and facts, The Tiny Book of Tiny Pleasures is a pocket-size gift of joy
Created by the editors of Flow magazine, it encapsulates the qualities that make their work so distinctive—the sensibility of slowing down and appreciating the simple moments of life, the emphasis on everyday creativity, and the joys of imperfection.”
This book ended up reminding me a lot of 14,000 Things to Be Happy About by Barbara Ann Kipfer, which is a book I’ve been wanting to read for awhile now. But turns out this tiny read was a lot more accessible and pleasant because it had these incredibly vibrant and lively colors guaranteed to brighten up your day even just a tiny bit. Plus, certain pieces are accompanied by insightful commentary and tips that really add depth to the ongoing arc.
On that note, here are some of my favorite mentions from The Tiny Book of Tiny Pleasures:
The above is such an accurate feeling.
thinks about Skam.
#Me right now.
I think the above might just be my favorite piece. I mean, look at those colors!!!
This last one brought to mind Ring Road, Iceland & The Atlantic Road, Norway, which the book mentioned earlier on. And thanks to said mention, I discovered this beauty of a place in Norway:
All in all: I’m truly grateful for this read because it made me discover an abundance of new places and insights thanks to the author’s many welcome recommendations.
But damn did The Tiny Book of Tiny Pleasures end quickly. Since I wasn’t really paying attention to the page number and just enjoying flipping from page to page, I was stunned to have suddenly reached the acknowledgments… That’s when you know it was a good read.
