(web searches for paper are intrinsically frustrating.)

Now accepting orders for custom handmade books.. treat yourself to a new handbound journal or sketchbook! 
PM me for details.

etsy shop coming soon!

I go down to my local Loomis and get a pad of strathmore drawing paper.  It's 70lb paper, heavy but not too heavy, good for sketching or just plain writing, and a pad of 40 sheets costs me about $4-$5, and the sheets are 9"x12" (my books are usually smallish, so these work for me, but bigger pads are easily found).  It doesn't have to be strathmore, just any sketch paper that's about 70lb should fit with what you're looking for.

yay paper!  I also love paper but am currently extremely broke, so I can only look but not touch.  Tongue  but, I work at a museum and we order papers from French Paper - they have a wide variety of papers that are good for text blocks.  they don't really have much in the way of fancy decorative papers (and here I'm thinking delicate things with leaves and such, etc), but my bookbinding teacher swears by them for many of his projects.  plus they have awesome graphic design!

i had a similar problem and was on a budget. i bought a ream of hp medium gloss (i think) 32lb paper for like 10$ that i could cut to size because i was making smaller books. i found the paper to be a good weight for book pages--not as flimsy as the normal 20lb paper at offices. plus, the leftovers are a great weight for handmade envelopes.

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that has been frustrated trying to find the right paper.  Getting paper large enough to be able to fold it has been frustrating for me (especially if I want to make a decent sized photo album).  But then the paper has to be the right weight and price.  I'll try out the suggestions here.  I appreciate it!

This is exactly what I was looking for!  Thanks so much to those who posted links; I've been wanting to make larger journals but have only had printer paper to play with, so all of my journals have been smallish.  I'll have to go bury my nose in Hollander's and French Paper's websites for a while...
