Open When. . .Letters to Lift Your Spirits by Karen Salmansohn

I have to admit, I love "real" letters--letters from friends and family delivered by the post-person. I think it says something about how special you are when someone takes time to actually write out their message to you. Most days in our modern world, though, messages come by email and text. This new book, Open When. . .Letters to Lift Your Spirits by Karen Salmansohn, offers readers a chance to "open" optimistic letters when they need to be encouraged.

This small book, with it's cheery, bright cover, measures just 7.4 by 4.2 inches. There are twelve letters to Open When. . .You've had a bad day, you feel out of place, you're doubting yourself, and more. The back cover describes this book as "an emergency inspiration kit designed to lift the spirits." The designs are cheery and I think this book would make a nice gift for someone. However, I would mention that it is not geared to the Christian audience as there are references to Buddha and Karma in some of the letters.  Aside from that, I do think they are uplifting and encouraging. I was genuinely inspired by the "Open When. . .you need a booster shot of motivation" and "Open When you need to find your happy place." I also liked that each letter had it's own sort of cheery stationery background.

I received Open When. . .Letters to Lift Your Spirits from Blogging for Books for this review. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
