I'm thinking about it, I really am. It's only $65 for the base
model... to get started anyway... :)

Well, that's what I heard but the people there had no idea what I was
They had almost no journals and had replaced that whole section with
garbage from London called "Paperchase". It almost universally sucks.
However, I live in an industrial swamp, and frequently find the same
store in other cities has a better selection.
Time for a trip to Richmond or NoVA I guess.

They seem to carry mostly Moleskine and some other stuff.
One thing I cannot find is decent full size notebooks for business and
programming notebooks, and things like server logs. I want good
quality and permanent storage, but rather not pay $15 each for them.
Getting ready to head to Williamsburg to Staples to see if they at
least have the latter.
Office Max and Office Depot suck. Their inventory is mostly redundant
and none of it that good.
Plus, you have to buy a dozen of everything. Last time I was there,
Staples had a lot more single-quantity items for lower volume and
trying things out.
Still, 30 miles each way... :(
