I wasn't trying to imply that at all; I included the quote to illustrate my
feeling that _my own_ primary concern in making blank journals is that they
be affordable and invite use. In the case of journals, I am *not* more
concerned with the book itself than with a person's _process of using it_.

My apologies to those who are sick of this thread -- it's strayed quite a
