Regular price $30.00

This Hardcover Edition of Hoda Kotb's I Really Needed This Today: Words to Live By is autographed by Hoda Kotb.

From New York Times bestselling author and beloved Today show anchor Hoda Kotb comes an inspiring collection of quotes--drawn from her own personal favorites featured on her 1 million+ Instagram account--that offer wisdom, courage, and hope.

Several years ago, Today show host Hoda Kotb began posting a variety of quotes on her Instagram page. Some were penned by a favorite writer; others offered a dose of love or laughter. Just when she thought the quotes were meaningful only to her, a funny thing started happening - reaction poured in from thousands of people who were just as moved. The quotes weren't just providing inspiration to Hoda, they were comforting and connecting people. So many of their comments read, "I really needed this today," a phrase that inspired the book's title. In I Really Needed This Today, Hoda not only shares 365 sayings and quotes, she writes about the people and experiences that have pushed her to challenge boundaries, embrace change, and explore relationships to their fullest. Written with her signature wit and warmth, this book is the ideal companion to tuck beside your bed or to bring with you on-the-go to keep you motivated, recharged, and inspired each day. 

As Hoda says in the Introduction:

Here's what I'm imagining: you...sipping a cup of hot coffee, cracking open this book, and reading it in bite-sized pieces. One quote at a time, one for each day, see if it speaks to you. As you page through, I'll be sharing some of my own thoughts, as well as insights from many of the people closest to me. Whether you tuck the book beside your bed or inside your tote bag, may it serve as a daily pick-me-up as you move through the year. My hope is that in some way - on most days - the quotes comfort you, motivate you, and leave you thinking - I Really Needed This Today.
