My wife and I went to Goodwill the other day, and while I was there, I found a mound of journals for sale, most of them in pretty good condition. I perused through them, thinking one or two might be good to pick up and use for writing notes, when I found they had already been written in.
Apparently whoever had donated these books to Goodwill had used them previously, and it looks like they were aiming to sketch out the details to an RPG board or video game. What's interesting is that there were at least two dozen of these books, both in black and red covers, and each was only partially filled with the writer's notes. Some had titles written in Sharpy on the covers, others were blank on the front. I attempted to find one that didn't have anything written in it, but the closest I got was one that had a page of writing and then the rest of the book was blank - so I purchased it for a measly $2.
