Is there anything quite as romantic and old-fashioned as sitting down with a thick journal and a good pen and taking the time to jot down your thoughts, dreams, and ideas? Sure, tech-savvy people may argue that you can do the same (and more) with your tablet, your smartphone, or your laptop. But for literary types and those who revel in practices from a long-gone era, the appeal of a favorite pen scratching against a crisp, fresh page can never be replicated—no matter how advanced the gagdet may be.
We're sure you have people like this in your life (perhaps you're even one of them!). What better gift to give them, then, than a thick journal? From vintage-style diaries with floral covers to miniature notebooks bearing classic quotes from famous writers, here are 50 that the writer will truly appreciate.
All items are available at National Bookstore and Powerbooks branches nationwide.
