Quickie Stickies: 100 Pick-me-ups for When You're Feeling Unglued by Karen Salmansohn
A collection of affirmations with attitude, "Quickie Stickies" is Karen Salmansohn at her sharpest and most unexpectedly inspirational. This unique package is a book of 100 sayings printed on Post-ups that can be-and are meant to be-stuck anywhere and everywhere, on the fridge, the computer, a boyfriend's briefcase, an office door, a bathroom mirror. Each is an aphorism to live by-not fatuous daily thoughts or recycled spiritual mumbo-jumbo, but sly street wit and wisdom. And each is wonderfully illustrated with retro colors and graphics. To wit: I'd rather be a role model than a supermodel, printed on the face of a bathroom scale. The only thing a gal can ever change in her man is maybe his wardrobe, next to a gingerbread man in a lime-green shirt. Live now. Procrastinate later, blinks a clock radio. On a Buddhist's shaved head: I have to let myself know what I know, you know? In bold black type on a field of chartreuse: Be a warrior, not a worrier. And, in a candy-colored collage with a cliff, the one that sums it all up: If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much room.
