"I was a serial journal-abandoner. Every other month it seemed another half used notebook would cross over from this world to the next and join its counterparts in the diary graveyard of my bedroom. And then, a miracle. Midori. A layflat signature sewn notebook with a reinforced spine, equipped with ribbon bookmark and labeling stickers. The paper is smooth with a soft cream tone—delicious for writing and sketching. Minimal show through, no bleeding, available in both international and Japanese standard sizes, the Midori MD Notebook Diary is a dream. Say farewell to your graveyard and join me in heaven."

"Incidentally I bought this little 5 year journal JUST before Covid 19. And it has been a lifeline, a daily respite--Sarah once caught me trying to handsell one by saying, "yeah it's amazing, my last 5 year journal followed me all the way from pregnancy to divorce". But it's true. It's also a testament that the only constant is change. And that this too shall pass."
