I was amazed to see any mention of "empty books"!  Take the next step
after bookbinding and JOURNAL, writing your
thoughts, sketching, pasting in found objects, etc., as in
bookbinding,,, your imagination is your limit!!!!

Why would anyone just keep empty books and despair is beyond me.....
have faith in yourself and write write write or
draw draw draw or collect collect and paste, etc. etc.  Your family and
friends will enjoy them long after you are gone and
you might get a kick out of them when you are 100 and looking back
through them!  Keep one for travel, one for parties,
one for day-to-day thoughts....

Someone once mentioned just put in a receipt or two for fun... like a
gasoline receipt because in a couple of years you will be surprised
 at how prices changed and there, you have documentation!

Journaling is so popular and therapeutic just like bookbinding!
