Me: I don't have *that* many notebooks. Also Me: *cleans out desk and finds more* Oh...
Putting them in a drawer does not mean I don't own them, lol.
My main beef with 90% of the notebooks that I own is that they do not lay flat, making it impossible for me to neatly write in them, so I had to go out and buy a spiral bound one most recently. I haven't used it yet (of course) to see if that actually helps or if I'll just complain about the spiral bit getting in my way. Preferences?

I hear you, Keri. Notebooks are my Achilles heel. The simultaneous glee at getting my grubby hands all over shiny new hardcover notebooks as well as the dread for my wallet are real whenever I enter a stationary store.
Last time I counted was over a year ago and I was just underneath 100 unused notebooks. Maybe we should photograph and share our collections?
Current count is 73 notebooks of varying sizes, and 28 notepads.
A lot of these have the start of things, mostly scenes from larger pieces or short stories I started and forgot about.
Like the teensy blue notebook at the top of one of those stacks. It fits in the palm of my hand, and I purchased it at a "convenience store" one day when I had been laid off at work in the middle of the day, my phone battery had died, and I finished reading the only book I had with me and there was still an hour left. It was the only one I could find (and was adorable!), so I went with it.
