Over 2 years ago, this week’s addict made her first appearance on this site. I loved the way Ina measured her collection by standing next to the pile. She’s kept collecting notebooks since then and look how the pile has grown!

Ina has a whole page on her website with a Q&A about her notebook collecting:
Tell us something about your notebook collecting self.
- I’m Ina, I’m 22, and I like notebooks waaay too much.
How many notebooks do you have, so far?
- They’re too many now, I’m thisclose to losing count. I count boxed sets as one notebook and I count duplicates as one each, I give some and receive some, so the number moves around constantly.
As of December 26, 2012: I think they’ve made it past the big 1-0-0 at this point.
How long have you been collecting?
Where did it all start?
- Ever since elementary school I was really the kid with a notebook in one hand. I used to buy the 9-peso artista notebooks back then. It just started snowballing when this little pink notebook in the Scholastic Book Fair blew me away and my high school friend bought it for me as a present. I haven’t stopped looking for good notebooks since.
