I know these aren't "postable" but if anyone has one or more nice blank journals, I'd be interestd. I prefer lined paper and, ideally, a spiral binding so it lies flat ... but that's not a deal breaker. 

Perhaps we could negotiate a "price" for these? I was thinking one credit for 2-3 journals (depending on size, etc.)

Let me know what you have and we'll figure something out.

I'd love blank journals too, if there's any that you're offered and don't want. I'd be happy with a credit per 1-2 journals (depending on size).

I wonder if these would be an issue regarding Media mail? They look and feel like books without close inspection, but I think if the package was opened an issue might come up. I haven't looked at media mail guidelines in a while so maybe they are ok. The weight would be as much as a book if they were decent sized, and would be quite expensive to ship if not allowed under MM guidelines. I wouldn't want them returned to me or have the other person have to pay either. Might be something to consider.

I havea  few blank journals I'd be willing to do for 1 credit each - they are all hard cover and pretty good sized. Will dig them out and post descriptions of them later tonight.

Beth is correct, blank journals do not meet the definition of media mail so people swapping them should take this into account.

I took the hardcover composition books kids use in elementary school and covered them with fabric and just created my own journals. I gave some out as gifts last year for Christmas.Cheap and easy to do...glue gun, glue sticks and fabric.
