The “Today” show host announced on Instagram Thursday that she is releasing a new book titled “I Really Needed This Today,” a collection of 365 inspirational and “feel-good” quotes and stories. Kotb famously posts inspirational messages on her Instagram account.
“They are meant to inspire, make you feel good,” said Kotb, 54. “It’s a book I’m really, really excited about. It’s uplifting, and I hope it lifts you up.”
The book’s Amazon description states that Kotb accompanies the quotes and stories with her thoughts on “people and experiences that have pushed her to challenge boundaries, embrace change, and explore relationships to their fullest.”
“I Really Needed This Today” comes out Oct. 15. It will be the New York Times bestselling author’s sixth book. Kotb previously released “Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer, and Kathie Lee,” “Ten Years Later: Six People Who Faced Adversity and Transformed Their Lives,” “Where They Belong: The Best Decisions People Almost Never Made,” and the children’s books “I’ve Loved You Since Forever” and “You Are My Happy.”
In her Instagram video, Kotb said she looks forward to being back at NBC “very soon,” but didn’t reveal her exact return date.
