This week’s addict tweeted this photo of a nicely stuffed box of notebooks! Looks like over 30 notebooks in about 4 or 5 years? I’d say yes: he’s an addict!
Thanks for sharing, Michael!
This week’s addict is another YouTuber who has quite a collection to show off:

“I watch a lot of movies and in 1998 decided to keep track of every movie I watched that year, while writing short reviews, tracking what city I saw it in, who I saw it with and numerous other stats I enter into its pages. I called the project Kinetoscope as a nod to early film history. 18 years later and I’m still doing it! I’ve logged over 4,000 films seen in 59 cities, in 10 countries and with 129 different people. My notebook of choice has been quite varied over the years, but in 2016 I discovered the Hobonichi Techo and with its amazing Tomoe River paper perfectly blending with my fountain pens–it will be my notebook of choice as I continue onward with my addiction.”
Thanks for sharing your addiction, Joshua!
This week’s addict emailed me photos of her notebook collection:
Hi, my name is Mary and these are my notebooks:
I guess you could say I’m addicted to them. I mean, everybody needs a notebook sometimes, right? If I didn’t have these, I wouldn’t have anyplace to write stuff down.
I wrote something in this one a while back, I think it was something about a septic tank so I tore out that page and threw it away when I didn’t need it any more.
There’s nothing written in this one right now. There probably used to be, but I must have torn out those pages too. Or maybe I just bought it for my nephew to doodle in, I can’t remember.
I keep my notebook collection in a special spot, nice and handy:
I don’t remember where I bought them… or when… or why I picked these particular ones. I mean, they’re just notebooks… whatever!
Many thanks to Mary for sharing her addiction! So glad I could feature it on this special day… 🙂
This week’s addict is an illustrator graphic designer who has been keeping sketchbooks for years. Some of these go back to his college days. More recently, he fills about one sketchbook a year, and likes to decorate the covers. They look fantastic, inside and out!
This week’s addict blogs about pens, paper and more at The Finer Point. Jenny has accumulated a prodigious collection of Field Notes and other brands of small staple-bound notebooks, both used and unused. I love the way all the used ones look in the first photo– so much color variation but such nice, neat bundles of all the same sized notebooks!
These ones are unused:
“My issue seems to be really prevalent with pocket notebooks. Initially this was in part fuelled by the crazy collectable, and in part, competitive nature that exists around Field Notes. You don’t really have to search very far to see people desperate to have all the new releases and buying up large quantities of limited editions. Many people will have a problem of hoarding notebooks so I am not alone, and my stack is probably much much smaller than most, but to get a real idea on how bad it was I decided to write a post on the number of used and un-used notebooks I own.”
This week’s addict hails from Malta, where he’s amassed quite a collection! Here’s his photos:
I love seeing them laid out so neatly in rows, and beyond the obvious Field Notes and Rhodia and a few other brands I recognize, I think there are some European brands here that are less common. I’d love to know more about them!
Thanks for sharing your addiction, Lukas!
This week’s addict is a self-described “Moleskine whore” who blogged about his sudden infatuation at NitroCats:
“I have a confession to make: I’ve become a bit of a Moleskine whore. And I’m okay with that. It started a few months ago when I wanted to get back into screenwriting and wasn’t feeling very creative sitting in front of a word processor. So I packed the nearest notebook I could find and wrote things down the old-fashioned way. And it felt great….
A few months go by and my Moleskine collection has multiplied like a horny jackrabbit. “
That does indeed look like a pretty serious addiction! A whole shelf-full of various sizes and styles of Moleskines, all waiting to be filled!
