Great notebook, very convenient. My only complaint would be the paper type used. It is a slick and thin paper, which does add to the utility at the expense of luxury. If you're used to Journals that use heavy rag paper, you'll be disappointed. The other downside to the thin and slick paper is that Gel Inks and Fountain Inks will smear and bleed through. I have switched to Ballpoint with mine, I found my Cross Ion and nicer fountain pens useless with this journal.

For men, this will be a bit too big to fit in a jean pocket. Yes, it fits in the back pocket, but you don't want to sit on that lump all day. I recommend the Cahiers, which are small and light and easily fit in the same pocket as your wallet. I use a Nintendo DS case, which holds two notebooks and a pen.

Quite handy for sketching and doodling anywhere. Sturdy pages accept some light watercolor washes, ink, and dry media. Pages lay flat thanks to the style of binding, so it's easy to work a two-page spread of 5 1/2" X 7 1/2". The expanding pocket in the back cover is handy for storing train ticket stubs, show tickets, receipts, and business cards (the phone numbers and addresses of good restaurants or shops discovered while exploring during trips sometimes come in well-desinged colorful formats that can be used to make collages or decorate journals). A bit pricey, but they are the just right size to fit on any pocket and strongly bound to preserve notes and sketches through the rigors of travel.

Okay, you're thinking, "Ten bucks is a lot of money for a pocket notebook." Well, if you're the kind who can survive with a lined pocket memo pad, this notebook's not for you. If, however, you need a durable, elegant, pocket-sized way to record your ideas, observations, sketches, and anything else you can put on paper, this is it.

I work on the news for a local highschool, and i am always about writing things down. I keep 4 new molskine notebooks in my desk at all times. I uasualy keep them in my back pocket, and sitting in classes all day with the notebook in my pocket can basicly destroy it. And i have killed quite a few of them this way. But thats my fault. They are the perfect size for your back pocket and dont get in the way too much. It would be nice if they had a stronger version of the book, for thoes who are a bit tougher on their stuff, something like riveted pages to the cover. I rebind mine all of the time, but keep in mind they get thrown down staircases, dropped on the street, and chucked into trash cans by some crazy student. Basicly because im always on the move, taping events, filming movies, and everything i have so much going on i dont have time to worry about how my notebook is going to hold up, and the Moleskine line does a good job at putting up with everything i can throw at it. I use them to record my daily notes, and use them for story boarding. The cover is tough, and the elastic extremely helpful. The back pocket is very good for keeping business cards in, i can pull out a card at the same time i write a note down! :D

The notebook, made by Modo & Modo, a firm created in the 1990's, is fine overall. But the paper quality could be higher-I can clearly see the writing on the other side, no matter what pen I use. I find the elastic band unnecessary and an annoyance upon closing the notebook. The binding and cover are sturdy though. So overall, it's a fine notebook, but nothing exceptional, and thus overpriced. There are other notebooks of similar format with equal or superior quality.

So my friend's enthusiasm for it perplexed me. To hear him, the "notebook" had just been invented; a new tool was available. As if no one had used a notebook before. I soon discovered the trigger for this attitude was the proclaimed "legendary" character of the notebook, with past users apparently including Hemingway, Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh, and others. The thought of using the same notebook as such intellectual giants was exciting to him, and unconsciously made him unduly pleased with his notebook.

This claim perplexed me, as years ago I saw Picasso and Hemingway notebooks, and my recollection of them was different. Hemingway was well-known for writing on notepads or in "blue French notebooks" and you can find several references to this on the Internet. On the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum web site, you can also see a picture of Hemingway's notebooks, which look just the way I remembered them, and nothing like the Moleskine notebook.

Another claim by Modo and Modo is appearances by its notebooks in various movies. It claims the Grail Diary in "Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade" is a Moleskine. In fact, the diary is a prop made for the movie. You can see pictures and descriptions of it on the Indygear Web site. It has a soft, brown leather cover.

On the surface, it's just another plain notebook. Not much to look at, really. But there is something magical about the Moleskine. I can honestly say that this pocketsize notebook has increased my creativity, simply by being there to hold whatever I choose to put on its blank pages.

It has a perfect size for those of us, who don't necessarily leave the house with any kind of bag. It fits in your pocket. Then there's the sturdy design: It's made for being lugged around. And though it may be plain, it still comes with a handy built in bookmark and a practical pocket inside the cover, where you can store businesscards, ticket stubs or whatever else you feel like putting in there.

I'm hooked on Moleskines. After having had various notebooks all my life, this is the only one I will use now.
