My First Moleskine

The other day, I was in Borders and I discovered this little notebook. It had a story printed on the wrapper and I found it really intriguing. I didn't buy it, but I did go home thinking about it. I then saw a post in Danny Gregory's blog where he mentioned the very same notebook. I did a little MSN Searching (formerly known as Googling) and I found all these links to blogs about the notebook. I feel like the last person to know about this thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

OK, so I'm a sucker for great marketing, so I picked one up today. I love it.

  1. Good choice ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve got one too. Nice to own/use some low tech stuff in this high tech world. Also I decided to write with pencils only, using a sharpener and a rubber. It feels so good – reduced to the max, you know? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I picked one up last year in Amsterdam and I love it. Keep it with me (in my backpack) all the time. Though I have to admit that I don’t do all the wonderful things as explained in the site, so I doubt mine will ever make it to a museum after I pass away. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know what U mean. I was in Belgium & I walked into this small but pretty spiffy looking little shop. In it they had various styles of Moleskins including the ‘Original’ Moleskin. I also read the blurb about all the famous writers/philosophers who had jotted down notes for their later to be published piece de triumph in just such a notepad. At around $30, it was a little too much for me to consider at the time, (I mean itโ€™s only a notepad after all) but Iโ€™ve never forgotten the feel of that little book in my hand & one dayโ€ฆ

  5. Know what? I’m just about to get one today, and reading about it on your blog here confirms that i’m on the right track in getting one.

    I have a small Moleskine sketchbook. I love the size! It goes everywhere and is almost filled up with drawings. I think I might get a large one too.
