I love making memories with pictures, and letters, and scrapbooks, and sometimes journals. I have a hard time taking the time to write out what happened in my day in my journal but when I do I feel very proud of myself. This black hardbound beautiful classic looking journal is perfect for anyone who likes to write and make memories that you can read later. I purchased this journal at Seagull Book for only $9.85, it was ten percent off when I bought it, you can also buy these online, and there are two color choices, a burgundy and a pretty clasic black. There are one hundred and ninty two pages in this book. The nice foil stamping on the cover adds to its high quality, leather cover look. The paper inside is high quality acid free paper as well so you can paste pictures inside if you really wanted to. The plain nice look of this jouranl is perfect for anywhere you would want to place it, it will fit well with any shelf of books or just by its self on your office desk. The size is 8.5 by 11. I pasted some pictures in this book about three years ago and the acid free paper has kept them nice and clean.
