David Mitchell’s Notebook

I wasn’t familiar with David Mitchell’s books, but there was an interesting article about him in this past Sunday’s New York Times Magazine: Since the appearance of his debut novel, “Ghostwritten,” in 1999 — a fifth, “The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet,” is being published this week — Mitchell’s writing has been compared with […]

Moleskine Monday: Bank Advertising

I spotted this in Manhattan: Recognize that planner? Looks like a Moleskine to me!

Notebook Addict of the Week: Missy

This week’s Addict emailed me this photo of her stash– I love the variety, from simple spiral notebooks and composition books to large journals and looseleaf binders. (It’s interesting how some notebook addicts have a lot of repetition of the same notebooks, and others use many different kinds…) Here’s what Missy had to say: I […]

Yes, he said, but one was for thoughts on his school work, and the second was about the environment, and the third one was for […]

“My boyfriend keeps reading my journal”

Have you ever had to deal with a problem like this? My boyfriend and I have been dating for 10 months, and we’ve grown extremely close to each other. He’s a wonderful guy, and we’ve talked seriously about marraige. However I have a small problem: he’s read my journal twice now. The first time he […]

Moleskine Monday: Pressed Flowers & Leaves from Mt. Hood

Moleskinerie linked to these beautiful images and I liked them so much I had to share it too: Mt. Hood Moleskine Journal. I love the look of the pages with the light wash of color and pressed-in plants. I haven’t tried to save plants in a notebook like this since I was a kid and […]

She’s also fond of basic black sketchbooks, Clairefontaine, Ecosystem and others. You can read more about her various notebooks in these posts on her blog.
