When you think about it, not securing your private thoughts with some kind of lock seems kind of risky. While locks won't prevent a truly determined snooper, they will discourage casual lookers from flipping through your diary on a whim.
Our selections come in a variety of sizes suitable for a range of budgets. Most are made of leather, faux leather, or tough fabric and are designed to stand the test of time. We also looked for a variety of page styles--some people want lined pages while others prefer blank so their journal can include sketches and a more free-spirited writing style.
In this update, we removed an item due to concerns about its availability. Added the VIPbuy Magic Notebook in one of our top slots because who doesn't like reversible sequins? We also think it's a great value for the price.
