One Book July. Every year, I think, oh yes, of course I want to do this. One notebook. Maybe even just one pen. In the past, I have even managed it, after a fashion. One super-wide spine on a Traveler’s Notebook cover and as many inserts as I could stick in it (more than ten, if I remember correctly) .
This year, I thought about it. I should have a TN cover in A5 size with a wider than normal spine, right? Except…except that usually, the most my A5 covers hold are two notebooks, the hard cover ones. And right now I am working in now less than three hard cover A5 journals, my kbujo, my July bujo (that is going to end up with a lot more than just July in it) and my reference journal, as I am filling that in here and there as things strike my fancy. Not to mention, my journal, an A4 notebook, which fits in none of the A5 or B6 — or even the few A6– journal covers I have. I like the stickers I have on the of my journal notebook and I have no intention of buying a cover for her.
Oddly enough, neither my kbujo nor my bujo are in covers either. My Passion Planner daily is. My–what I call my workbook grimoire is in a cover. But otherwise, my notebooks are floating around free and nekkid…and every one covered in stickers on the front cover.
I did want to follow along with the Atomic Habits read along, but I could not find my copy of the book. I bought the book in the past couple of months and I can’t find it now that I want to read it. Or re-read it. I have to look at it again to see if I did read it when it arrived or not. I don’t remember.
