For those of you who are into keeping journals, would like to start, or need an attractive notebook for other reasons, Target has nice little leather-covered journals with lined pages, ribbon markers and elastic closure — very much like Moleskines®, but half the price. (And Moleskines are covered with oil cloth.) They even have the little storage pouch and perforated pages in the back.
Prices are $6.99 for 192 pages, pocket-sized, and about a buck more for a regular small journal size. The pages are high-quality paper, and “book bound” to lie flat. They appear to be low-acid paper. A good deal on a nice little book!
