I usually would not pay this much for a notebook but this is worth it.

All of the fountain pens I use have a fine point nib.

I've been journaling ever since I was a pimply-faced teenager, and now I'm 31. In that time, I've used all varieties of notebooks, and filled them all. I came across the Moleskine brand a few years ago, and now I won't use anything else. The large ruled notebook is sturdy, of excellent construction, holds I think 265 pages, and the pages will not fall out. This notebook is best for writers and diarists.

I wouldn't use this book for school because, first of all, it is expensive. Second of all, it's a bit of overkill. I doubt you'll take a class in which you'll have time to fill up this notebook. You'll be more organized in a class if you buy a simple lab book or composition book to take notes in for each class.

I know a lot of people who try to write in jounals. They buy them with the best intentions, write a couple of pages, and then seem to forget about them and eventually buy ANOTHER journal, in which they will write a few pages and forget about. The key is just to keep the SAME journal, to keep in it in the same safe place, and to write in it whenever you feel like it, even if months go by without you touching it. If someone buys you another journal, fill up the first one first, and then move on to the new one. You can learn from my experience and start with the best, which is Moleskine. Otherwise . . . do whatever you want. The main thing is just to have something to write in.

I've also used all variety of pens. My choice is the Pilot Precise V5. Every now and then you'll get a bum one, that you've just got to throw away because it's not writing smoothly or properly. But, for the most part, these are the best choice for journaling and writing. They are fine point. They last longer than gel ink. They require no pressure whatsoever to be placed on the tip, as ball-point pens do, and they don't smear.

I've heard these books are wonderful. I take a lot of notes at my job. Having struggled with wire bound books (the bindings getting bent or snagging clothing) and being teased about being too old to use composition books, these notebooks are a joy to use. The attached ribbon bookmark and elastic band close have come in handy to use. The paper is smooth and a heavier weight than other notebooks. The paper is also a cream colored so there is no glare when writing in bright sunlight. The book is tough enough to be out on the job but professional looking enough for meetings. Love this book! I'm planning to buy more and have the covers laser-etched to give out as gifts.

There's a lot of good to be said about the notebook, and Moleskine deserve credit for reviving this design which had nearly disappeared. The hard cover. . . the elastic band. . . the cloth bookmark. . . the ivory paper. . . the rounded corners. . . It's all good. I might quibble that the ruled lines are spaced a bit narrowly for my handwriting. It's good with a EF nib pen, and it fits a few more lines on each page, but it's a wee bit cramped compared with my normal handwriting.

What really ruins it for me is the paper quality. I've heard it varies from one batch to the next, and it sure seems like I got one of the bad ones. I found many combinations of fountain pens and ink are prone to ugly feathering and bleeding in it. With many of them it's impractical to write on both sides of the sheet, which basically cuts the notebook in half from what it should be. TO BE FAIR, I found I could tame it by choosing the right ink (Noodlers Black) and using a not-too-wet fountain pen. Indeed, I would be willing to take this extra effort to adapt to this notebook's quirks if there were no better alternatives out there.

Recently, though, other companies such as Quo Vadis and Rhodia have come up with their own moleskine-style notebooks featuring high-quality paper. They cost a bit more, but I figure this type of notebook is a premium product to begin with. In the future I'll give Moleskine a miss and spend a little more for a better notebook. (Being able to write with confidence on both sides of the page means I could actually come out ahead on cost too.)

Okay. I admit it. I fell for the hype. Not so much the company line ("this book used by famous artists, and writers" blah blah blah)... but the beautiful exterior, clean professional design, and... naively... assumed that for twelve bucks, I was getting something nice.

Well... yes and no.

They're "okay". Everything I thought was special about them is true. They really look like something a professional would use. They look like something you could proudly use to write in while your sipping a latte at Starbucks. They have a look that makes people ask you what you're writing in, and where you got it.

Unfortunately, it doesn't deliver on the aspect that I took for granted. The paper.

I'd read some reviews that said the paper was cheap, and that it wasn't good for artists. I... equally naively... disregarded those opinions, because I couldn't believe that such a nice (and expensive) product would go cheap on the most important part of a notebook. The part you write/draw on.

I've tried gel pens, felt pens, ball-point pens, liquid ink pens... they all cause problems. Gel pens, and liquid ink pens smudge too much to be of any use (great for artists, eh?). Ball point pens are just cheap, ugly, and work poorly, and felt-tip pens look nice, and dry quickly enough, but bleed straight through to the other side, forcing you to only write on one side of each page. Certainly not what a journal writer, or novelist would prefer.

If there is a form of pen that writes on these things satisfactorily, I've honestly not found it.

I wanted to love the Moleskine. I love the story (I didn't believe the story about Picasso, Hemingway, or Chatwin, but it is a compelling one). I love the design. I love the binding.
