Notebook Addict of the Week: The Archer

It’s long overdue that I call attention to this week’s addict, who blogs at Rants of the Archer. Here’s part of her notebook collection:

There are 57 notebooks in that photo. But wait, there’s more! Another 55 notebooks are shown below:

She mentions that some of the notebooks are being used, but I also spy quite a bit of undisturbed shrinkwrap and pristine-looking edges in those piles! But then, whoever said all the fun of notebooks was in using them!

You can read more at I Love Notebooks and I Love Notebooks, Part 2, where you’ll learn that The Archer also collects fountain pens, toys, shotglasses, elephant figurines, and tea bags. I hope she lives in a big house to store all those collections!

Moleskine vs. Greenapple

Jessica compares a Moleskine sketchbook to a Greenapple notebook, a much less expensive brand found in the Philippines.

Her comments: different elastic, doesn’t open as flat, and the paper is whiter and coarser. Worth a try at about 1/4 the price of a Moleskine! (At least if you live in the Philippines.)

Has anyone else tried one?
