However, if you're planning to carry it in your back pocket on a day to day basis, you'll find that it doesn't hold up well. I'm an office worker, and the one that I've carried one for about a month is in fairly rough shape. The cover is heavily worn and the pages seems to be a bit loose at the bindings. Also, the pages are, well, paper thin. More like vellum than normal Moleskine notebook paper. I can easily see the previous page's writing through the next, which makes it tough to discern at a quick glance.
I'm sure this would be fine in a purse or bag, but if you plan to keep it in your pocket, you may want to consider the tougher Flexible Reporter notebook instead. It's a bit thicker, about as thick as three of the cahiers stacked together, but is much more sturdy.
I like writing with fountain(Pilot Varsity Disposable Fountain Pens, Black Ink Dozen Box, 90010 or rollerball pens that use liquid ink, and the ink can bleed through the back of the page. however, this notebook so easily fits my needs and its design makes it easy for me to take along and not feel like I'm crowding my pockets. The final nice touch is the back cover that has a pocket to hold business cards or other small pieces of paper.
Each journal in this pack of 3 is slim enough to ride in your pocket or any briefcase/pack/purse. The pages are just large enough and lay so flat that you don't feel like you're writing on something as annoyingly small as a post-it note. The ruled lines help keep your thoughts flowing straight across the page, but are printed lightly enough that it works passably well for brief sketches as well. The last 16 pages are perforated so you can easily tear out a sheet to leave a note, reminder, or phone number/address for someone else. The cardboard cover is slim and durable enough to protect the pages from tearing, yet flexible enough to mold to your butt or the bulges in your briefcase/pack/purse.
Yes, you can find fancier journals, but you won't find a journal you're more likely to take everywhere and always have on you when good ideas spring to mind. Authors, inventors, artists, theoretical mathematicians, and other obsessive or creative thinkers should never be without one of these. Highly recommended!
If you're thinking of carrying around something that's this size--and if you intend on writing notes in it that are remotely important to you--I'd recommend something sturdier like a "Rite-in-the-Rain" notebook or a Field Notes book. They're expensive, yes, but at least you won't be left with three books that a dollar-store Mead pad would give a run for its money.
These Cahiers are an embarrassment to the Moleskine brand, and the only reason that I didn't give them a single star was because, yes, you can in fact write in them and they won't immediately dissolve or burst into flames.
