Just search Google for Moleskine paper quality and you will see a moutain of complaints about bleed through and show through. I wish I had before I bought this Moleskine. Will not be buying again.
Oh, and don't buy it into the marketing suggesting connections with Chatwin, Picasso, Van Gough and Hemingway. It's all manufactured by Moleskine.[...]
I thought this was a medium-sized notebook (smaller than full letter size, but larger than a wallet...which is this one); turns out I should have spent a little longer looking at the dimensions. I bought the larger version at a local bookstore and should have realized the price was too good to be true for an exact replacement. Oh well, this will turn into a portable travel journal.
I'm a big list maker and fan of Getting Things Done, so this allows you to log ideas or lists on the spot. No batteries required!
The grid is neatly and consistently printed on every page. Having grown up in a European school, the style is very nostalgic to my "quadrillé" notebooks, which is enjoyable.
The ribbon pagesaver is very handy and the elastic keeps it reliably closed.
Already bought a second one to have on deck as my current one is about full.
While we were in Peru for 3.5 weeks, even though I had a netbook and a blackberry, this small moleskin proved invaluable. It served as my, and our, durable take everywhere personal organizer. It proved the best for writing out small lists of restaurants, traveling directions, mapping out the broad itinerary in a table of the weeks, phone numbers, addresses, names, etc. Particularly where the amount of information recorded only took a line or two per item or could be obviously listed like the three distinct lines of an address.
There is a ribbon bookmark as well as an elastic band so two bookmarks. I used the elastic band to hold my current place. Sometimes I'd have to seek back quite a number of pages for some older info I needed. I could always find it easily.
The durability is amazing. I carried it everywhere, usually thrust into a front pocket. Never in my pack as I seemed to pull it out much too often. Not to mention the accordion-like back pocket for storing slips of paper, business cards, receipts, etc.
I use it less at home. It's not wide enough for some notebook like writing I have to do. I'm going to order the xlarge kraft. In addition, there's when going to the supermarket my list is simply on that scrap of paper stuffed into my back pocket. For visits to the doctor and so on, I take my netbook and the questions are in a spreadsheet.
It predominant use now is when I go to several stores and enter what I want in each one.
Also, I expect I'll need it again soon when I visit Baltimore for the first time.
A friend in a Spanish course introduced me to the moleskin and for this I can really see its value. The small, but larger, spiral notebook where I wrote down idioms, vocab, etc. was always funky. Pages would crinkle, sometimes partially separate from the spiral, the cover got creased. You know the drill. So ...
5 stars. Really, 4.7363. But did prove so valuable!
