Notebook Addict of the Week: Amanda

This week’s addict emailed me the photo below and says:

“In the interest of going through and minimizing clutter, I’ve put myself on a one year notebook buying moratorium. I won’t be parting with any of them, but won’t be adding anymore either. I use them for a variety of things- lists, journals, reminders, and just have some as unknowns and enjoy all of their disparate and aesthetic qualities.”

Go a whole year without buying a notebook!?! Well, if one must, a large, colorful collection like this one is a good consolation!

Thanks for sharing your addiction, Amanda!

“In Praise of Notebooks”

We can all relate…

I popped into Paper Tiger. I had an excuse. An upcoming birthday requiring a card. But most of the time I was in there my eyes kept drifting off towards the notebooks.

I have, I should say up front, a bit of a thing about notebooks. Lined, gridded, hardbacked, softcovered, any kind really. I’m drawn to them all. Paper Tiger is relatively safe for an addict like me. Most of its stock tends towards the quirky, or even fey. So I can keep my desire under control. As long as I stay away from the Moleskine stand.

What’s terrible is I am useless with notebooks. I fill them full of my crabby, ugly writing that often – always; who am I kidding? –descends into illegibility….
