Paper quality is excellent, and the cover is very durable.
Nathan Hale
I have had Moleskine notebooks before, and they have always been of the best all-around quality and value; you certainly get your money's worth on these little gems.
Pandora
The notebook is small, easily fitting in a pocket or purse, but is still large enough to write in comfortably.

Moleskine Ruled Notebook
In the course of my working life I spent several years as a computer tech, and have consequently learned a healthy caution regarding the frailty of electronic devices. The Pocket Moleskine has been the most reliable PDA I've tried. Compact enough to fit in any pants pocket, the covers are stiff enough to provide a firm, stable writing surface even when standing and yet still pliable enough to be comfortable even in a back pocket. A previous reviewer said he expected a notebook "the size of a DVD case". Two points in response: how many DVD-case-sized pockets do you have, and why didn't you order the larger Moleskine? He also complained that he could only get one sentence on a page in his Moleskine. my own handwriting is of a normal size, and a quick check of my most-recently filled Moleskine shows an average of 130 words to the page.
The Moleskine is filled with good, smooth acid-free paper that can take a wide variety of inks without smearing, discoloring, or bleeding through. The expanding pocket is well-secured and can hold a surprising quantity of loose notes, receipts, business cards, etc. The books themselves are well constructed and durable; mine are exposed to hot, humid conditions and hold up to daily carry and use.
The other reviewer pointed out the price: certainly these are not 79-cent Office Max specials, but for the serious writer, or a person who must record important information through the course of a day and retain it legibly for more than a week, the price is worth it. One hint to extend the capacity of your Moleskine: use the bound pages for things you want to permanently record, and keep Post-It notes inside the covers to jot down quick memoranda. I use the Post-Its for such things as the titles of books or movies I want to research. (Think of the Post-Its as expandable memory for your PDA!)

Don't let the name fool you: this is the pocket-sized Moleskine, which is about 5.5 by 3.5 inches. If you're looking for something bigger, the "large" Moleskine, at approximately 8 by 5 inches, might be the one you want. (Updated 09/29/09: The item title now has the word "pocket" in it, so I'm thinking/hoping that the misunderstandings are pretty much over with.)

I currently own three of these pocket notebooks, having gotten my first one back in early 2005. Now don't get me wrong -- I adore Moleskines, but there are some things you should be aware of. The paper, for one, isn't that thick. I love it and I love the texture (and the color), but be warned that it might not take very well to certain pens, especially ones that have more liquidy ink, such as fountain pens.

The binding on two of mine have also become loose, with moderate use over a decent period of time. I usually write in pencil, so the bleeding through the paper is not an issue for me. This Moleskine would certainly get a 5/5 from me if the binding could just hold up. Instead, the threads are loose, and my pages are coming out. Maybe I got some defective ones -- I don't know. But I bought them separately and at different times. I can't tell you much more than that, so you decide for yourself.

Dear Artist friend or business person,

It's been nearly 4 years 8 months since I stumbled across these neatly packaged notebooks by Moleskine.

The ruled ones are great for journaling in especially if you are a hands-on person that still loves the idea of preserving the past in a manual way. You know I mean with out using a computer. Or computerized hand held technology or a digital recording device.

Don't get me wrong I have devices like this but somedays you just want to go back. Back to the times when life was simple and things moved slower...you know Old School technology i.e., (pencil/pen and paper). If you're into doing that and prefer keeping track of the notes you take at seminars or notes you take of your daily life then this is a great little book for you. Why? Because great ideas should be protected.

The truth is that I have purchased quite a few of these as I try to keep the pace of journaling everyday. The reason why I enjoy putting my notes in this book is because they're not bulky or hard to carry. I also love the elegantly classic construction because they're really put together well.

They really are well constructed:

EXTERIOR---

Smooth-Elegantly Black leather like exterior

Durable-against spills or rain (but this should not be abused)

INTERIOR---

High-quality paper (great for archival purposes and storage)

Binding and pages are well put together. I have not lost one single page due to the spine breaking and pages falling out. The ones I have are not glued into the spine.

People aren't paying 10 bucks for these tiny journals for nothing and neither am I. I will say that for prose writers or for anyone that is trying to get a better value, go for the bigger-sized versions, though i don't recommend the cahiers at all. They are not worth the money. I write poetry and have been working on an epic poem that is not all 'short.' much of it has been jotted down in one of these tiny moleskines. It's amazing how much they can hold, but there are 192 pages. The main thing about any journal is learning to utilize space. I've been using journals for creative purposes since I started out in architecture at virginia tech ten years ago and i think i'm just now getting the hang of it. I really believe it's about as much of a trick as learning to utilize line breaks in poetry. One more thing: if you're using a fountain pen that's of good quality, it really doesn't take more than 20-25 seconds for the ink to dry. As for claims about bad bindings, I don't know what to say. I set one on top of my car and drove off, thought it was gone and came back to the same 55 mph road that I had taken off on two hours prior. I found the journal in the road. The cover was partially torn away and was extremely scuffed but the binding was fine. I'm guessing the bad bindings were flukes. Just my opinion. Still have the journal. Repaired with some type of black tape they use to conceal wires.

Update: If carried in back pocket, the binding will fail. The bindings are otherwise adequate, but they do age. I suggest either finding a safer pocket or trying the soft bound version of this. I have not tried the soft-bound one and did not want to, but will. A month of getting sat on every day will ruin any I suppose. Sorry for doubting claims of other reviewers.
