I became interested in the Moleskines from reading (all of) Bruce Chatwin's books. I use the small Cahiers (pocket notes, ever-ready for jotting and aide de memoire for everything); the large, plain notebooks - the perfect journal, cannot be beaten; and the extra-large, square-ruled Cahiers for working on guitar designs, design ideas, construction ideas, floor plans, mechanism sketches, etc., etc.: they are my design journals.

This large notebook opens flat, the binding doesn't break, the covers are tough without being too heavy (for carrying), the elastic closure and page marker are very handy, especially the elastic. The weight of the paper is nice and its quality is wonderful: absolutely uniform. The pages feel good in your hand; writing on them is smooth and even - effortless. The size is just right, enough pages but still very compact. (The cahiers are perfect for your pocket.) Very tough and well-made. Just a joy to use. The Moleskines are a bit more expensive than cheaper options; but they are well worth it -- for anything that you intend to retain for a long time (why else write a journal?)

The feel, the sense of perfection, the knowledge of picking up and using the PERFECT TOOL for the job are intangibles that quietly enrich life. (Not to mention the feeling of touching history.) It's like the the perfect chef's knife in the kitchen or a perfectly-balanced razor-sharp chisel effortlessly peeling away wood. They are beautifully, simply elegant in their perfection.

Perfect comes up a lot in this review. There it is!

I've used several of these, and the paper quality is very uneven in the way it reacts to fountain pen inks. One works just great: on the next the ink might feather badly, or bleed right through, especially when I use a thick nib.

If you're a ballpoint user, this notebook is great. If, like me, you prefer a fountain pen, I recommend Clairefontaine or Exacompta journals -- Clairefontaine even make one with unruled pages.

Simply a blank book. Cover is bound in leather (it looks like) is incredibly durable with thick, high quality paper, high quality binding, with a tasteful black elastic band for holding it shut and a somber dark violet marker ribbon attached.

This is perfect for a student, it fits in my pants pocket or a small pocket on my messenger bag perfectly! I have absolutely no doubt that if I don't abuse it, this Moleskine will be in good condition decades from now. These things are built to last.

The only minor issue I have is the marker ribbon tends to fray, it would seem. Not that much of an issue, I'll just run a hot glue gun over the end of the ribbon.

I would strongly recommend buying one if your looking for a place to put your thoughts, although if you journal more seriously then I do (I just like jotting down my thoughts occasionally) you may want to upgrade to the "Large" for ease of writing and to have more sheets. Journaling daily in this thing would be a pain. This is more sized for writing down thoughts as they strike you, not multi-page daily reflections. If you want to do that, get the larger size.

Again, I LOVE this thing!

Fits perfectly well in the backpocket. Good for jutting down itinerary, random thoughts, comments on place, reminders, even good quotes from a book or movie. Best also to paste small tickets, pics, clippings as well to remember the travels/days/places by.

Gives sense of accomplishment when youve filled-up the entire notebook.

Negative: not for signpen. writing will show on the opposite page. Expensive, a bit of price reduction can help.

[AMAZON should remove the "imitation leather" comment. "Moleskine" hard or softcover tag is enough.)

There are Moleskines in every size that fit all my needs, but this is the one I use the most. If I am researching a singular project - whether it is gardening for next year, my Mom's 75th birthday, or a trip to Paris, I start with this blank journal.

I separate the sections for what I need and fill them in as I go. I start by creating separate sections for each type of information I am collecting. For my trip to Paris, I had one section filled with quotes and all the literary Paris themed books I read. Another section included all the Parisian cookbooks I had read, and all the recipes I tried and loved. Another section included web sites where I could view all the tourist Mecca's (The Louvre, Chartres Cathedral, etc.) And of course I had a travel itinerary section for planning my whole trip.

I kept the book in my backpack or purse while in Paris. In the back pocket I added business cards, postcards, pamphlets, photos I took - every scrap of paper I wanted as a memory. I also used the book as a diary of my trip, adding addresses and phone numbers of new friends and new places (cathedrals, bistros, small out of the way museums.)

When I got back home, I sorted out the ephemera of my trip and created a travel scrapbook with the remaining pages of the book.

I use this blank canvas Moleskine for every single project I undertake in my life - from losing weight to creating a new wardrobe, from decorating my home to decorating my garden.

Try it the next time you take on a project. Having your written word, photos, magazine clippings, stickers, etc. all in one place make it a welcome piece of your history to explore over and over again.
