Love Moleskines. I prefer the soft cover for more of a broken-in feel, easier to stick a pen in between the pages and carry it around. The hardcover's good for adventure-writing durability, but come on - you know you're just using it in a coffee shop anyway.

Just a heads up for those of you who need a specific number of pages in a notebook: Moleskine reports page numbers for their notebooks like you would number the pages of a book instead of normal notebook makers who give you the physical number of pages in the notebook.

Just a warning.

These are the best notebooks I've ever used and I've used a lot of notebooks over the years. I love the soft cover version as I have a great, custom-fitted leather cover from Renaissance Art that makes it look and function like a million bucks. The beauty in all the Moles is their stitched binding that allows it to lie flat for writing. As a fountain pen user, I also appreciate the slight "tooth" in the off-white paper along with the visually comfortable neutral toned rules. I drag it everywhere and order several at a time, I will never be caught without one at the ready!

I bought the lined soft back because, frankly, I suck at writing in a straight line w/out the ruled paper!

I am NOT disappointed at all! I love my first Moleskine. It goes everywhere with me in my pack for instant lyric scribbling. It's durable, this particular one has a GREAT binding, and the size is great for daily toting.

Re: the binding; make sure that you take care of your Moleskine. They aren't invincible, so if you crack the spine or consistently bend the pages back behind the book you may not be so pleased long-term. Treat it like a normal book that you'd care for long-term, not just another spiral bound notebook for school notes. It will handle regular writing, opening, closing, flipping through pages frantically as you try to scribble down your thoughts... all of that good stuff ;)

Yes, the soft cover is a bit tough to write on if you don't have a stiff surface underneath the thinner side. I regularly have a desk or table in front of me when writing so it's not a big deal for me. It is only a minor issue when trying to write in bed. Consider where you will be writing before you buy one.

I'm going to purchase the smaller one, too, for small foot-print travels (hiking and such). I also plan on a hard-cover for travel/journal action. I swear it makes personal writing 'fun' again for me!

Compared to the hard cover version this is ok. I got the soft cover because I thought it would be easier to carry. I think I prefer the hardcover over this one. The smaller pocket sized soft covers are nice but this size did not work out so well for me. Also, the cover next to the spine bubbled up a little after about a week of use.

I really enjoy using Moleskines for daily journaling. The covers are durable, feel is sophisticated, and pages are very high-quality.

To this point I've used the hardcover version of this journal. I spotted the soft cover at the store and I decided to try it out. I'm definitely sticking with the soft cover. It's lighter and just as durable as the hard cover version. Actually, I think it's more durable based on the fact that my hard covers showed much more wear and tear. The corners would fray because of the cardboard cover. The soft cover is thinner but still tough.

Also, the soft cover journal stays open when laid open on a table. I didn't think it would do that as well as the hard cover but it definitely does stay open just as well. Go with this if you're looking for a journal that's light, durable, flexible, and reliable.

I am new to journaling. I was introduced to it at a workshop where I was given a Moleskine and asked to make notes about various things during the workshop. I found a connection to writing. There is something different about pen-to-paper writing than writing on the computer.

I have since been keeping a journal and find it very rewarding.

As for this product itself. The Moleskine journals are really nice. They are well made, durable and are a joy to write in. The only challenge I have is that the cover isn't really stiff enough to write on without a desk. But, they make hard cover journals for that. Perhaps I'll try that for my next one.

I do like the size of this particular journal, I can fit it in the back pocket of my jeans, through it in my bag, basically it goes everywhere with me.

There are three types of pens I've used with my journal. A gel pen, ball-point and a fountain pen. All work well. I have had others tell me that fountain pens tend to bleed through the paper, but I've not experienced this.

You won't go wrong with this notebook.

The paper in this book is first class and it has a feel of luxury. The smell of the cover gives you a sense of inspiration. This book is a "classic" and I always wrote my notes but now they are in one place. This is a book that will stay with me now forever.
