BookExpo 2014

For my day job, I attend the Book Expo convention every year. A fringe benefit of the show is that I usually manage to spot some notebook vendors and get a look at their new products, but at this year’s show, which occurred last weekend, it was really sparse! Leuchtturm had a colorful corner booth, […]

Filofancy’s Flex

The blogger at Filofancy notes that the Flex series by Filofax doesn’t get much blogging coverage. I can’t say I’ve found them inspiring at all when I see them in stores– wrong sizes, blah materials… it just makes me sad to see them in comparison to the wonderful things Filofax was making 15 or 20 […]

Questions from Readers

Once again, I’m rounding up some questions from various readers who are in search of their perfect notebook. Help them if you can by leaving a comment! From Landon: I really like the filofax pocket cover you showed a couple of years ago. I have been looking for something exactly like that for a long […]

Questions from Readers

These are some stumpers! Please chime in if you can help these readers! From Jeffrey: I’m looking for a specific kind of notebook that I can’t figure out if it exists or not… looking for a soft cover with elastic closure (like the soft moleskines).  Also want it to be perforated on every page (like […]

Sloane Crosley’s Yearly Date With the Planner

A fun New York Times article by Sloane Crosley. She’s been using the same Louis Vuitton planner and inserts for 22 12 years and counting: At the end of each year, I sit on the floor and go page by page through the old calendar, inking annual events into the new one, all the while […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: LJ

This week’s addict is another Filofax fanatic. LJ recently moved and unpacked not only a TON of Filofax binders and inserts, but some official Filofax cabinetry that they’re stored in! Wow. Just… wow. See lots more at LJ’s Blog of Stuff: Move Complete.

New Homes

… for me and my notebooks! I’ve been posting a little less frequently lately because I’ve been very busy preparing for a move to a new home. My notebooks, of course, are all coming with me, and I’ve been trying to organize them better in the process. For years, I’ve stored them all in shoeboxes, […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Milagritos9

This week’s addict was found on Flickr, with a colorful selection of Filofaxes and other notebooks:         I love her color-themed collections! See more at My Journals, Diaries and Notebooks – a set on Flickr.

Notebook Addict of the Week: Laurie

This week’s addict is a blogger you all should know: Laurie from Plannerisms. Check out her fabulous collection, comfortably (but crowdedly)housed in its own bookcase: She points out: Note that this bookcase is nearly 6 feet tall. Also notice most shelves are two rows deep. Man, that’s a lot of notebooks and planners! One of […]

Calendar Wars: Electronic Vs. Paper

A fun article in this past weekend’s New York Times: Calendar Wars Pit Electronics Against Paper. A few quotes from paper fans: “I’ve got an iPad, an iPod, I’m on Twitter and Facebook and I’m talking on my BlackBerry now,” said Nelson George, a cultural critic, filmmaker and producer, in a phone interview. “But that’s […]
