Notebook Addict of the Week: Bee

This week’s addict blogs about creativity, and declares that she is “addicted to pretty notebooks.” “So I was extremely excited to learn that I am not the only gal who has an overwhelming addiction to fancy diaries, journals, and notebooks. They can be plain, they can have beautiful covers, there can be lined, plain, and […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: LizAnne

This week’s addict emailed me some great photos of her collection, with her own notebook story going along with them: I’ve been following your blog for a little over six months now. I was so tickled to find a community of notebook lovers just like me. I think I’m a great candidate for Addict of the […]

Notebook Addict of the Week (again): Shaynie

This week’s addict is another repeat. Shaynie was featured here back in April 2011, but she’s recently emailed me these up to date photos of her current collection: Shaynie says “I think I have around 40, currently, and this is from over a decade of journaling. Here is a post I did about it: http://keepingjournals.blogspot.com/2014/01/my-notebooks-and-journals-so-far.html” […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: D Murphy

This week’s addict contacted me by email to share this photo: I love this collection– the almost architectural way they’re stacked and shelved, the consistency of notebook types and date/subject labeling. And many of them have a nice worn in look– not totally beat up, but that slightly dingy and soft look that comes from […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Sarah

This week’s addict emailed me the photo below of her collection: “I still have my first journal from 47 years ago. I restrict my collecting to sewn or ring bound books, no glued or stapled books. Some of there books were gifts, the group on the left are all from France and brought to me […]

Field Notes, Field Nuts

Occasionally I get emails from readers who want to contact people I’ve featured on this site with notebook collections including Field Notes. There are lots of limited editions, and people like to collect them all. Now there’s also a website and Facebook group that can help with this quest: Field Nuts! Check out the forums […]

Random Giveaway Winner… Plus More!

Wow, there were 195 responses to my random giveaway post! It’s seems a shame to have to pick only one winner… though there will be more to the story, as you’ll see in a minute. First, my random winner is… (drumroll please)… Charles Hadden, comment #160 Congratulations Charles! Now as for everyone else who entered, […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Anke

This week’s addict is from Holland, and sent this picture of her collection, or rather, part of it: “I’ve been a fan of your site for a long time and for an equally long time I’ve been wanting to send you a picture of my own collection. What was holding me back was a sense […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Allie (again)

This week’s addict is back for a second time in the spotlight. The last time I featured her collection, she was only 14 and might have had the highest notebook count to age ratio of anyone I’ve featured. I think this may still be true! In her own words: I’m Allie, now 15 years old, […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Luis

Luis emailed me from Brazil. He’s a fan of Zequenz and Moleskine notebooks, as well as Leuchtturm and some other brands I can’t quite identify from this photo of his nicely organized collection. I think I spy some Writersblok notebooks towards the left: Thanks for sharing your addiction, Luis! Obrigada!
