What Are the Different Types of Journals?
Journals range from simple spiral notebooks to elegant leather-bound books. Size is important. Writers on the go may prefer smaller, slimmer journals than desk-bound diarists. Journals also come in a variety of different formats, such as daily diaries, which may or may not include printed dates and locking mechanisms. Some journals have lined pages while others are blank. Appointment and schedule books often contain areas to record contact information, as well as pockets or plastic sleeves to hold business cards, pens, and receipts. The cover artwork on a journal can range from a single plain color to elaborate artwork or simple graphic designs.
