Voron emailed me these photos of her notebooks. The close-up is of a Paperchase notebook. I detect a strong preference for colorful wire-bound notebooks, but there are a few plainer hardcovers snuck in there too! Thanks for sharing your addiction, Voron!
Here’s a notebook that I liked so much, I had to buy three of them. I still love the concept of these: the look of a composition book in a different size. I’ve always loved the black and white patterned covers of the traditional composition book, but I have not usually wanted to use something [...]

There’s something about the colors and that stripe up the edge and the ribbon closure that makes them seem nicer than other [...]
This seemed like an appropriate notebook for today: Actually, the contents of this notebook are anything but romantic. My mother gave it to me in 1981 and asked me to keep a diary while she was away for a couple of weeks, helping her sister with a newborn baby. I dutifully chronicled everything I did, [...]
This week’s addict is a YA writer who considers herself obsessed with notebooks and displays this colorful selection: These were the notebooks just within reaching distance from where I was sitting. And you’d think I’d feel bad about that, but rounding them up and taking a picture made me smile. I’m pretty sure that makes [...]
Here’s a few oldies-but-goodies from my collection, three Roaring Spring spiral notebooks that I bought in 1980 and used between then and 1982.
