The other day, I noticed someone using one of these Penguin journals, which I’d previously posted about:
I was all excited, as I’ve never seen them for sale anywhere and all the online sources for buying them are based in the UK and it would cost a fortune to get one. While searching, I also stumbled across this version, which I hadn’t seen before:
I totally want it, but not for $35 including shipping!
The spotting occurred in the middle of a meeting with lots of other people, so I couldn’t ask the owner where she bought the notebook. But otherwise I would have, even though I might have felt a bit self-conscious about it. If she was a true notebook fan, I’m sure she would have understood my interest and appreciation. But what if someone just gave it to her as a gift and she couldn’t care less about what she uses to take notes in a meeting? Maybe she’d think I was weird!
Do you ever ask people about the notebooks they are using?
