This Reddit post is hilarious, and all too accurate; I am the fountain pen girl at work!
Oh how I enjoyed this NYTimes article by Tom Vanderbilt about the joys of inexpensive Japanese pens. I feel the same way about my Coletos. I want to plan a trip to Japan just for the stationery stores!
And finally I am itching to get my hands on the new Stephen King: Finders Keepers. It features the same characters introduced in Mr. Mercedes, which I haven’t read yet.

I love Mr. King and these books were on my To Read list but now because of the journal connection they have shot to the top!
