Notebook Addict of the Week: A Penchant for Paper

This week’s addict is Heather at A Penchant for Paper. I really enjoyed her post about her system of using multiple notebooks, including the ones below: “I have multiple notebooks, multiple pens and pencils, and multiple pen cases, all of them equally stuffed full, and I still find myself acquiring more, although not quite as […]

A 1977 Diary

Wouldn’t you love to read what’s in this diary? Well, you can! Its owner has transcribed all the entries into a blog: In 1976, I read Dracula which is a book that is completely told through diary entries. It impressed me so much that at age 13 I decided it was time I marked the […]

Moleskine Monday: What is So Great About Them?

Western Suede-covered Diary from 1949

This unique item was a Christmas gift to me from one of the few people who knows I’m obsessed enough with notebooks to write this blog. Of course I was thrilled when I opened the wrapping paper and saw it:   The notebook is about 4×6″, with what appears to be a hand-painted suede cover. […]

Smartphone Notebook

Interesting idea, but not very practical, I’d say. The pages all have a  weirdly shaped hole in them, and although they’ve left a space for a headphone cord, you can’t turn the page without having to thread the cord through the hole or take the phone out. Surely there’s a better way to make a […]

Moleskine Monday: Hiking Journals by Kolby Kirk

So cool, I love this composite image of 704 Moleskine pages from Kolby Kirk, aka The Hike Guy. I’ve mentioned him on this blog before, but I think this is my favorite yet!   Read all about the journals and see more of Kolby’s excellent sketches at My Pacific Crest Trail Moleskine Journals | The […]
