Notebook Sightings

Some of the notebooks I’ve spotted on recent shopping trips, first these “Carnets de Poche” at a gift shop in Bethesda, MD. They’re a bit large to really fit in your poche, perhaps, but rather cute nonetheless, with a nice mix of papers inside:   I was quite intrigued by these Mead planners I saw […]

More Good Stuff from Our Readers

From Jennie, a link to an article with some more great reasons to favor paper over digital note-taking: “The notebook has an immediate tactile advantage over phones: they aren’t connected to the Internet. It’s intimate in a way computers aren’t. A notebook has never interrupted me with a screen that says, “Wuz up?” Notebooks are […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: DreamerO

This week’s addict also emailed me photos of her excellent notebook collection, with some commentary: I enjoy pocket journals, the saddest part is that they run out of pages so soon and I always feel like I’m abandoning a best friend when I have to start a new one. My pet peeve is that I […]

I can’t pronounce this addict’s name, but I like the collection, which appears here on Flickr with annotations.

Notebook Addict of the Year: Anene

Here we have another super-addict whose love for notebooks extends to loving to shower them upon others! Anene is the author of a novel, Dancing with Gravity, and the blog Anene Writes. She offered to send me “a couple” of notebooks and look what showed up!    It’s an amazing variety, from a simple Mead […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Ina

This week’s addict says “I’m Ina, I’m twenty, I live in Manila, Philippines. If I wasn’t broke right now, I would run to a bookstore and buy as much notebooks as I like. Sigh.” Love these photos, which include a friend standing in as a measuring tool! This was her collection as of March 31, […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Aimee

This week’s addict emailed me these wonderful photos and commentary about her notebooks. You can read more and see larger images on Flickr. I’m an addict.  Although I have more than in my photos, I don’t really have more than I will use (except let’s not count my addiction to Field Notes, yeesh).  These photos […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Bisonlady

This week’s addict emailed me a link to her Flickr photo stream, which includes these photos (and more) of her very large collection of journals. Wow:     Here’s what she has to say about them: From the attic to various places in my bedroom: paper as far as the eye can see… I’ve always […]

Moleskine Monday: “Cliche or Cool?”

Here’s another blogger pondering the dilemma of the Moleskine brand: As I approach the cash register to purchase a Moleskine Notebook, I couldn’t help but think of post #122 in “Stuff White People Like” that rails against the cliche mode of thought that one can be declaratively “creative” and need an expensive notebook that offers […]
