Notebook Addict of the Week: Jemma

This week’s addict emailed me to share her collection– or at least part of it:

I’ve been reading your blog for about a year now, and my favourite part of it is the Addict of the Week. I always wonder if my collection is actually a bit absurd compared to some of the others, but I think it’s fairly impressive. Sorry about the bad photo quality!
These are all my unused notebooks. I haven’t counted them all but I’d estimate there’s about 150-200 there. I go for bright designs, pretty pages, textured covers and of course, paper quality. My collection includes six TeNeues CoolNotes, two Moleskine sketchbooks, an A5 Miro and dozens of random ones picked up because I couldn’t resist them. I seem to leave the house with no notebooks and come back with at least three. I use them for journals, but also to write character diaries, short stories, novel outlines and each year I use several in my NaNoWriMo attempt.
I love the feel of pen on paper. I have been keeping a journal ever since I was a kid. And every time I feel like slacking in my writing, all those notebooks just look at me reproachfully until I get back into it. I don’t know a better feeling than finishing a notebook and adding it to the other -much smaller- stack. 😀

Wow. That is a pretty amazing stash of notebooks in waiting! Even if the “used” stack is smaller, I’d love to see that too! Thanks for sharing your addiction, Jemma!

  1. Wow, that’s a really impressive collection. I can see some Moleskine notebooks in the back. I miss the old Moleskiens when they first came out, the ones in stores now are not the quality they used to be.

  2. WOW! That is impressive! I thought I was awful for only have four to six journals left open… But this…is…..AMAZING! If you do not use them, at least you can pass them down to your children if they start getting into journaling 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for featuring my collection! It’s actually grown a little since Christmas. I’ll be sure to send in some better photos some time soon. I love this blog!
