is worth every penny. I recently bought a Leuchtturm1917 for £5 (reduced from £10!) and it's incredible.
Firstly, it's incredibly sturdy (seriously it's so strong), it's sewed together and bound really really well and the pages aren't flimsy and horrid. Secondly, it came with stickers you can you when you come to archive the notebook that fit perfectly into the (impressively sturdy) envelope at the back. The pages don't make the ink swell and leak onto the page behind it AND it comes with a contents section (I LOVE context sections!).
Thinking about it, I haven't written in my diary for a while. It seems that these days there is a staggered period of waiting until I feel the time is right for me to write, when something really extraordinary happens. Back when I started journalling I felt like writing things everyday because I had so much on my mind, but these days I feel most of what's in my head is expressed though my work or writing for other things.
Have a wonderful November, there's no moon in my window tonight.
