In my eternal search for the right notebook, I've looked mainly for the right size (about 4" x 6" - my thoughts seem to come in that size), and the right paper - specifically, paper that will accept ink from a medium nib fountain pen without bleeding through. Moleskin cheapened its paper; bleedthrough was just acceptable before but now it's impossible. Rhodia doesn't make a notebook this size (that I can find). Paperchase had a nice spiral-bound notebook that worked well, but Borders sold it and we know what happened to Borders. The Quo Vadis fills the bill. I tried it and now am ordering a supply.
