There’s something about all those blank pages encased in hard covers, in solid jewel tones and of varying sizes. Bookshops such as Barnes & Noble and Borders can’t keep enough blank journals in stock. The corporate shops supply wealthy masses of creative folk who crave a tablet to let a lyric flow, a doodle to become an artist’s portfolio or a wickedly early-morning poetic pen to scribe a 21st century masterpiece. The bound books are in the range of $5.95 to $15.
