Writers love blank books as much as any child loves a new book in September.

The blank books listed below are just suggestions to start you on your quest for the perfect receptacle for great ideas.
|Will gold foil inspire you? How about a reproduction of Shakespeare's signature?
This sturdy blank book begs for immortal words.
|Lightweight, handstiched, plain pages make this an excellent choice if you are travelling. The book even has a great little pouch to hold extra papers or memorabelia.|
|With the gloom of The Series of Unfortunate Events, this blank book will suit someone who enjoys Lemony Snicket and illustrator Brett Helquist.|
|This book is not exactly blank. Rather, it provides a structure for keeping track of books. What have you read? What did you think of it? What are your favorite passages? What was the name of that bookstore at the summer resort?
If it's about your book reading experience, you can keep track of it here.
