Perfect for cocktail parties, quiet reflection, daily inspiration, or travel entertainment, this delightful compendium is broken up into helpful sections that will fit your every mood, such as "Afternoon Feelings," "Nerd Feelings," "Heaven-help-me Feelings," or the somewhat more nebulous "Tangerine Feelings." Or try opening a page at random to help kiss writer's block goodbye. Don't forget to add your own feelings in the back of the book (before they get away!) and share with others"--
