Moleskine Monday: Evernote Expansion

Moleskine’s Evernote collection keeps growing, as they now offer various options in pocket and large size, including squared, lined and plain pages, as well as the heavier-weight sketchbook pages, softcover journals, and a planner.

Marie Curie’s Radioactive Notebook

Here’s a beautiful notebook that I’d rather not see up close:   “Marie Curie made some of the most significant contributions to science in the 20th century.
