Boy howdy, this sure is a nice little notebook, but what it's NOT is a reporter notebook. Why? Because reporter notebooks are 4x8. Let us examine why: A 4x8 notebook fits in most back and many front pockets. It is easy to write in a reporter notebook with the opposable thumb, the ring finger and the little finger holding the notebook while at the same time, the index middle fingers hold a digital recorder as if it were a cigar. Despite the compact and portable size, the reporter notebook has a a decent amount of space for note taking. That's why most reporters -- those lying, leftist, corporate rightwing apologist, white priveliged, Obama loving professionals -- use reporter notebooks.
This thing has some good qualities: it is far more durable than a regular reporter notebook, and it has a lot of pages. But it is too dinky to be practical for anything other than your big ideas and grocery lists. It's shortness actually makes it awkward. C-minus. Elsewhere, I review the large Moleskin reporter notebook, which is also not an actual reporter notebook.
(I'm sure some reporter will come on here and say it's perfect and I'm full of crap, but I'll let you in on a little secret: he's a plagiarist.)
