I wasn't quite sure where to post this but I figure this is a rather good spot.

I want a journal. No I NEED one as of late. I want it to be large (I've found tons I love but they are too small), lined, and unique. I'm having a hard time! I don't want to pay a million bucks for one either.

I LOVE this shop but they are too small for my preference and seem a bit stiff. I don't want to fight the pages as I write (not that I want limp either ). I'd love to get a laether one but obviously those are going to be more spendy.

So, where do you get your journals/writing books? I know I can go get something plain and add my own touch but I don't want to. I just want to get it and be ready to write.

Since I require spiral journals (being left handed, I find other bindings a real pain), I go to Barnes & Noble's "Bargain" racks. They almost always have journals on sale there. They usually offer several sizes, with the nice O-wire bindings and lined, smooth paper. And the large ones are usually around $6.98 (8.5"x11" size). I get those for when I'm at home and write with the journal in my lap. The more portable size that I take with me in my backpack (5.5"x8.5") is only $4.98. I just love them. Sometimes they are ugly as sin, but other times I've found pretty ones! It's hit-or-miss.

I just Googled them and they are by a company called Piccadilly. Like I said, the sale ones are usually the nice O-wire style, where it folds neatly around, no "fighting" with paper.

:-)

Good luck! I know how important finding the right journal is!

This shop has slipcovers for regular composition notebooks. She sells them with the journal included, but then the cover comes off for when you need a new book.

I may have to get one of these, especially since they are reusable. I feel like I can justify it to myself. lol

I buy mine at Target, actually... not a HUGE selection, but they're nice and sturdy, and that's what I'm writing my current WIP in!
