These come three to a pack, and have covers of lightweight cardboard. Many of the pages are perforated, and it has an approximation of the standard pocket in the back (a bit less secure). You can get them blank, ruled or squared (graph paper). They are also available in black, if that's your thing, but keep in mind you can't usefully write on the cover if it's black.
What I love so much about these is their lightness of manner. They fit more comfortably in a coat pocket, so I *always* have one on hand. They're not precious (in price or style) so I don't feel bad tearing out a page, even a non-perforated one, nor does it bother me if I spill beer on one. And for more important notes, you can write on the cover.
I still do appreciate the traditional Moleskines, but the plain cahier is my constant companion, my artistic PDA. I highly recommend it.
So I found these notebooks and fell in love. I keep one in my pocket at all times and am always jotting down notes, lists, diary entries, reviews, URLs, passwords, etc.
My only fear was losing one, or spilling water on it and watching my water-based fountain pen ink become unreadable. Happily, we have a new copier at work that scans to pdf and emails. So once a week or so I send myself any new pages and have a permanent record in my email inbox if needed--best of both worlds.
The little pocket on the back has been very useful--holds my bus pass in a very convenient location for quick access; likewise a few business cards--no need for a pretentious separate case. And room left over for a few dollar bills to get my caffeine fix on the way in to the lab.
I tape my business card to the inside front cover in the hopes some kind soul will return it if I do leave one laying somewhere. On the black v. tan color? Black shows less wear; tan does allow one to write on the cover--but depending on the ink one uses, how close to the body carried, and perspiration, this may not be a Good Thing for one's clothes.
Make sure you check what type of paper the book has when you order it, as moleskine offers several types, including blank pages, lined journal pages, graph paper ...
I can't think of anything negative to say about these books.
I use these in a low-tech-high-tech way now: after I fill a book, I remove the binding with a seam ripper and then I feed the pages to my scanner, so I end up with a PDF of the whole book. I have been able to send this PDF to the Kindle app in my iPhone and then I have the old book handy that way.
The scanner I use is the Fujitsu ScanSnap, which I recommend very highly.
If you do this, don't forget to number the pages before you remove the binding.
These are the only notebooks that I've run across that are small, flexible, and side bound. I've tried using the small, top-bound spiral notebooks that are commonly found in stores. Those spiral notebooks tend to get beaten-up before I'm done with them, they give me paper-cuts, and it's somewhat inconvenient to flip the notebook over to continue writing stuff down. I've had none of those problems with the cahier notebooks.
Personally, I use this as my wallet and notepad. I keep my ID and credit cards in the back, and I use the pages for ideas, memos, or notes. The one I currently have in my pocket has held up for 15 months with a bit of tape to help it. I always get compliments and "Ooh, that's cool" comments when I take it out of my pocket. The Moleskine is not only a good notebook; it's basically a fashion or personality accessory in what it projects to others. If you're into writing, it's cool to have good supplies for it.
-The look and feel. New ones look serious. They have a cool shape, and the thread of the binding is a nice touch. Old ones look vintage.
-The size. The width and height are great dimensions for any pocket. And the thickness is easily bearable. When compared to my Galaxy smartphone, it is lighter and thinner, with only a few cm of excess around the sides.
-The flexibility. Since I keep this in my pocket, the flex helps it stay comfortable. The paper also makes it feel less sweaty than my cell phone.
-Page texture. I can write with any pen or pencil on the paper, and it feels great. From fountain pens to ballpoint pens, from regular #2 pencils to drawing leads.
-Ink bleeds through the pages.Read more ›

The paper in these is slightly different than the larger size for some reason. Doesn't take Copic/Prisma markers well at all - they look splotchy like the ink isn't absorbing... Read morePublished 4 months ago by zoe
