To those who say bigger is better Studio Oh offers the scaled-down Compact Deconstructed Journal for your consideration. Like its full-size cousin, the compact version features fabulous artwork, a rough canvas cover that's soft to the touch and weathered on the edges, 192 lined pages and a unique "exposed" binding that allows the journal to open flat a full 180 degrees. But, because its smaller 5 x 7.25-inch size makes it highly portable, Studio Oh has added an elastic band closure to keep your doodling, class notes or inner-most thoughts secure while tucked away in a backpack, messenger bag, briefcase or carry-on. So, no matter where life's adventures may take you, the Compact Deconstructed Journal is ready to go along. The passionate and creative designers at Studio Oh believe that products should not only be relevant to the needs of today's consumers but also should be environmentally responsible, infused with energy, elevated design, richly-saturated colors and fine craftsmanship. From beautiful calendars loaded with super functional planning features and stationery and journals that move and inspire to kitchen linens and tablet accessories with plain-old-amazing designs, Studio Oh invites you to explore their extraordinary products available on Amazon.

I'm so happy that I made that choice since I find I like the Leuchtteurms better than Moleskines! Not only did I get far more pages than I'd get in a Moleskine, but they are better organized with space for a title and date at the top of each one, page numbers at the bottom, and a table of contents in which you can keep track of your notes. As with Moleskine, there's an elastic band to keep the book shut when not in use, but there's also a pocket in the back in which to keep loose papers.
The Leuchtturms all come with a sheet of labels. There are labels for the spine, which makes it a good choice if you plan to shelve your notebooks at some point, and labels for the front cover. The only thing even remotely negative thing I can say about these labels is that the ones for the spine are a bit difficult to center, and will peel up along the edges or at the ends. I've fixed this by putting a strip of transparent tape over them.
While I like most of the colors they offer, the gold is particularly jolly, lending an air of importance to whatever you choose to record in it. The labels have gold borders as well, so everything looks very rich. It's terribly impressive on a shelf filled with tatty-looking old notebooks, like a Duchess among guttersnipes. It's also not that much more expensive than the ordinary Leuchtturms, so go ahead and treat yourself! You know you want to. And while you're at it, invest in a nice fountain pen to use with it. Making yourself feel special doesn't have to break the bank.
The monthly planner has each month on 2 pages, and then 2 pages of lined paper. The paper quality is about the same as any Moleskine - thin enough that you can see there is writing on the other side of the page, but thick enough that it doesn't really interfere with the ability to see and write on both sides of the paper. There is a pocket, which I keep Map Dot Stickers - Assorted Colors - 1/8" Diameter to help me mark my planner.
I mostly use the Moleskine for giant, running to-do lists, which the lined pages work well for. The two annoying things about the planner are that the weeks start on Monday, which I don't prefer, and that it's only 12 months instead of 18 like the weekly planner.
My ideal notebook criteria include:
-hard bound cover (so the product will stand up to the rigors of my work and travel)
-spiral bound (so I can lay the notebook flat on a table)
-individual spirals (a. individual spirals are bigger and sturdier, so you can carry a pen inside the spirals, and b. you're able to flip the cover onto the back more easily than a linked spiral notebook)
-graph paper (so I can optimize the organization on my notes and draw graphs/pictures as necessary)
-strong perforations (so the pages don't tear out unintentionally - one of the things I didn't like about Rhodia notebooks was that the perforations were so weak, the page would rip out unintentionally during normal use)
The white lines graph paper is the bonus that puts this notebook over the top. The white lines give you the guidance you need without being obtrusive. This product is basically notebook utopia.
I like the A5 size because I don't typically fill up an entire page most days. Get the A4 size if your going to carry print outs or make a lot of notes.
