While in Mt. Dora, I picked up a new journal "It's All Secretly Perfect". I needed another journal like I need another hole in my head...but...I love this journal. It's recycled paper of cardstock thickness. Very smooth, but not slick. Even though the cover is hardback, the pages lie very flat. The only drawback is that the words archival or lignin-free don't appear anywhere, so the paper may eventually turn yellow.
I paid $25 dollars and feel it is totally worth it, but when I went to the web-site to check out the specs I found it was on sale for $11.00 (+ S&H).
