Notebook Addict of the Week: Derrick

This week’s addict blogs at I Still Write about some of our favorite things : letters, postcards, pens and notebooks! He started the blog to teach his kids about the fast-disappearing world of snail mail, and how cool it is to write and receive good old-fashioned paper correspondence to and from places around the world.

Review: Calepino Notebook

It’s taken me forever to get around to reviewing these notebooks, despite having basically had someone else write it for me!

Notebook Addict of the Week: Ana

This week’s addict blogs at The Well Appointed Desk, and emailed me this “confessional” about her love for notebooks: I think I go beyond a notebook story into a full-blown confessional.
