The biggest difference between a diary and a notebook is how they are used. A notebook is used for taking notes and a diary is used for diaries. They can be the same size, but diaries are usually lined with belts, while notebooks can be spiral-bound-sometimes with torn pages.

Diary and notebook

The diary is usually about 6 inches by 4 inches, lined, and comes with a strap to hold the cover and pages in place.

What really defines a journal is its purpose. "Diary" is not only a noun, but also a verb "news". When writing a diary, they write down how their lives are going, their hopes and dreams, plans to take over the world, etc. We like to think of a diary as an adult diary with no locks in front and no "KEEP OUT" sign.

Notebook and Diary

So now that you know about diaries, what about notebooks?

Notebooks are usually the same size as diaries and have pages with liners. Although this is not a hard and fast rule, many notebooks are spiral-bound, so you can turn pages quickly, which makes them perfect for taking notes.
