That's interesting. Presumably where we have been told that diaries and journals were being kept there were notebooks being created and re-formed. Diaries were kept but clearly not all writing was journaling. Notes were being taken. Fascinating, Mike, thank you
@mizminh @MikeKra36812131 These notebooks were often historically called commonplace books, zettelkasten, waste books, florilegia, etc.
