My notebook Terry pen holder hack
This is the front of my "The Purpose Driven Life" notebook. I keep my notes and thoughts in this notebook while reading Rick Warrens book. BTW, I highly recommend taking this 40 day journey.
Another hack (sort of) is visible here. I printed out the book cover from Amazon, and glued it to the cover.
And without pens. By putting the penholder like this I keep the size of the notebook to a minimum. No pens that are sticking out. When I'm done with this notebook I can remove the holder. The cut in the cover is barely visible, and can be protected by a piece of tape.
