Fantastic replacement for Moleskins - cheap, environmentally-friendly, and 2% of proceeds go to charity!
The only thing I have against them is that each individual book has a relatively small amount of pages. But then again, this is good because it makes them easier to fit in your pockets. Personally, I'm very satisfied
These little notebooks are the bomb!! The paper quality is sweet and the covers are thick enough to protect your paper but thin enough to easily mold to the shape of your back pocket :P I would recommend these to anyone who likes Moleskine notebooks, but wants a slightly cheaper notebook that has nearly the same quality. Writersblok notebooks are awesome. I think I am going to get some that have plain paper next time I buy some.
Over the past year and a half, I have developed the habit of keeping a small pocketbook with me. I have tried about four different types and the small Writersblok notebook is just what I have been after. I have always kept pocketbooks in the back pocket of my jeans, and a number of notebooks have too stiff of a bind to let me sit down without cutting off circulation and putting my leg to sleep. The Writersblok is malleable enough so that I never know its there when I walk or sit down, but it still retains its shape when I pull it out and need to write something. The binding is strong enough so the Writersblok has not disintegrated in my back pocket like some of the cheap Office Max books.
Also, and I know this is going to sound overly analytical, but, the paper in the Writersblok is a really good quality. I have not had a pen that would not react with the paper, as can happen with thin scratchy paper. I am a college kid, so I know a thing or two about taking notes. All in all, this is possibly THE best small pocketbook I have encountered. I will definitely be buying another pack after I finish off the four I have.
These little journals are a fabulous. They sport colorful covers that have been treated to be partially water repellent. Each page has 18 college rules lines. The paper isn't the smoothest I've ever written on but it absorbs ink instantaneously. I tested the pages with a roller ball pen as well as a fountain pen with absolutely no smudges or smears. Amazon's price is ridiculously low for what the Moleskin equivalent of these little pocket journals costs (especially for 4). If you need $6 to add to your cart to get free shipping, this is where you spend it! They're great for the back pocket, purse, back pack, etc... I gave a set as a gift to rave reviews - I know I sure love my own!
I brought this little bundle in to work with me so I can jot down notes while troubleshooting problems. My coworkers have piles of scrap paper lying around everywhere while all of my knowledge fits in my pocket. Buy 5 sets and give them to your friends and coworkers. Functional and recyclable. Awesome.
Nice size, weight, not too firm not too soft... just right. I've been in search of a small notebook just like this (without paying the price of moleskin) and this is it. I'll be ordering again and again.
