Urgency of Awesome: How Much Else You Could Be Doing: A Pressing Concerns Book Mark
by Liz Mason
Published by Pressing Concern
9"x3", 16p, sewn binding in various colors, b+w inside, card stock cover, color you get is a surprise!
The Urgency of Awesome: How Much Else Could You Be Doing, a pressing concern book mark, is a compelling reminder that sitting there, day after day, exercising only your eyes and maybe your mind and very rarely a fingertip or at most a hand in front of a screen, or worse, a book or pamphlet, is probably rotting you from the inside out. Aren't you hungry? Maybe you should use the toilet. Certainly a cat, somewhere, requires petting! An instant classic in the self-help book mark genre. Do not miss, etc., etc.
