    doc ☆ Significant Objects ☆ Paperback Significant ObjectsThe premise of the book outweighs what it delivers I enjoyed the short story format The photography is a little lackluster and the overall typography in the book is very inconsistent legibility wise I enjoyed the other objects book than this one

    doc ☆ Significant Objects ☆ Paperback Significant ObjectsNon fiction I was intrigued by the premise of this book The editors purchased 100 objects from thrift stores and yard sales for 128 total They sent these objects to writers to create stories around the objects They then sold the objects on Ebay to see if the stories increased the value of the items With the stories the objects sold for over 3600 total Great concept However I was disappointed in many of the stories

Cool

    doc ☆ Significant Objects ☆ Paperback Significant ObjectsI am terrible at rating nonfiction books I am very star stingy but I really liked this book not because of the money involved or the stories give objects value angle though that was interesting I love challenging the imagination and watching what talented writers can do It is almost a top chef for writers which of course would be in print form

    doc ☆ Significant Objects ☆ Paperback Significant ObjectsBefore I even read the first story I was hooked on the concept of this book My only regret is that I didn't take time to savor the stories Reading one a day would have been a better pace but I polished the whole thing off in just 2 sittings
