It's my belief that if you want to become a writer, it doesn't matter if you are writing in a steno notebook, a napkin, or a leather bound journal. Still, a leather bound journal is a great way to capture your writing. It definitely feels special to be composing notes in a journal with a leather cover. It feels important. They also make great gifts for the writers in your life. Whether it's Father's Day, his birthday or Valentine's day, a leather bound journal for men is a pretty awesome gift for any writer or guy in your life who loves to journal.
