Notebook Addict of the Week: MissVickyBee

This week’s addict is another YouTuber called Miss VickyBee, who has a variety of lengthy videos in which she talks about her various journals. This one is about 25 minutes and goes through all the journals she is currently using (or was using as of its 2014 date).   There are lots more to explore!

Notebook Addict of the Week: Josh

This week’s addict has a lovely shelf full of Field Notes. You’ll also notice what looks like a couple of antique diaries in the middle there, but they’re actually iPhone cases! (A very nice iPhone wallet case called BookBook.) Josh is actually reviewing the iPhone cases in the post linked below, so you won’t learn […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Mark

This week’s addict is an architect with a shelf full of sketchbooks and a recent preference for Field Notes: “…I am quite pleased to have recently found a series of small, flexible notebooks by Field Notes Brand… They are not quite large enough to replace the classic 5×8 landscape-bound black sketchbooks that I have been […]

Review and Giveaway: Archer Planner

Here’s a new entry in the growing market for highly formatted planners. The Archer Planner from The Active System Co. comes in a 3-pack of stapled booklets. The 3 notebooks are differentiated by the colored block that wraps around the spine, in red, yellow or green, but they are otherwise identical. Each notebook is designed […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: William

This is one of my favorite notebook addict submissions, because these notebooks are truly full of stories! “My name is William, last November marked 20 years for me as a ships agent. Indirectly my notebook habit began in the US Army. A very instrumental part of infantry basic training is you are required to keep […]

Planner Formats

How do you feel about planner notebooks with highly formatted pages? I love seeing images of how people use them, as the pages sometimes look wonderfully dense and textured with text and colors and highlighting. But when it comes to using them myself, I’m a bit reluctant. I make lots of lists on paper, but […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Jenny

This week’s addict blogs about pens, paper and more at The Finer Point. Jenny has accumulated a prodigious collection of Field Notes and other brands of small staple-bound notebooks, both used and unused. I love the way all the used ones look in the first photo– so much color variation but such nice, neat bundles […]

Review & Giveaway: CR Brand Notebook Wallets

I first came across the CR Signature Notebook Wallet a few months ago and immediately thought it was a great idea. A notebook and a wallet are both key daily carry items for almost everyone, so shouldn’t there be a good way to combine them? But it’s surprisingly hard to find something that does both […]

Rekonnect Magnetic Notebook

I love this notebook idea but it makes me mad! Why does it make me mad? Because I had a version of this idea myself but I wasn’t savvy enough to figure out how to put it on Kickstarter and raise over $175,000 to make it happen! I think many of us notebook lovers have […]
