Why bother carrying around a pen and paper when you can easily jot down notes on your iPhone or a myriad of other tech gadgets, right? But for people like me, nothing will ever beat the good old-fashioned notebook. My personal preference is for stylish notebooks with distinct covers. Take a look at a few fashionable notebooks below.
