Do you Moleskine?

I was first introduced to these notepads about six months ago and I must admit that I love the design, look and feel of these little (some of them bigger) notepads. I ended up getting one of the smaller ones with lines and I carry it with me in my camera bag pretty much all the time.

Now, I haven't really used it all that much. I sometimes doodle (poorly) in it but am still hoping to find more uses for it as it's a really nice pad.

Any other moleskine users out there?

Below are some photos of when the notepad came along and ended up on the table next to a camera...

You got to try the Moleskin calendar. They make a black one in A5 (15 x 21 x 2 cm circa) with a page for each day.

My only problem with it is that I can only buy a new one each year. I would love to buy a new one each month.

I also use different small ones with the camera bag and especially on travel I use it. One page for each roll; the roll has a number, the page has the same number, the locations/shot are in sequence on that page so that I can put in names and cameas, etc. into the scanned files info.

Also their notebooks (0,8 x 18 x 26 cm circa) are nice. I use those for interviews and other notes I want to keep chronologically.

Uh, you got me started. Moleskin.

I do. Here's another quality product that I enjoy: The Levenger Pocket Briefcase.

It holds 3 x 5 index cards well (click on "more photos"). I had been using index cards for years, before the Hipster PDA (before PDA's in general, actually!), and the Levenger is just a nice touch. A bit on the luxurious side, sort of like a Luigi case, but they frequently go on sale at Levenger. I have a monogrammed one in toffee. You can also find them from a couple of Ebay dealers in Florida (who I think sell Levenger factory irregulars), but no monogramming, obviously.

In deed, I love the Moleskin notebooks! I'm one of those guys who's been through every PDA there is, but nothing beats the feeling of paper when it comes to taking notes.

Moleskines are my auxillary hard drive. I continue in the batteries not included lifestyle, I write with a Parker 51 fountain pen.

Enjoy

My Moleskine is my brain.

I can't be without it. I'm also a pencil kind of guy.

Moleskines are the best notebooks ever. You gotta love them. I like the small ones. With hardcover, you can write nicely and they're pocketeable. I write there my scientific ideas, lecture notes, random poetry, you name it. Never leave home inspired without it.

If I actually used a calendar for myself, I would get one. For now, i just get the plain ones to draw and write.

Yup, I 'moleskine', and I love it! I think I have a lot to learn, but I do like your idea, Gordie, of putting a card in the pocket with important phone numbers.

On a recent vacation the Moleskine (I use the small reporter model for most things) was invaluable, especially for having the address and phone# of a Quebec formagerie that had increditble lait cru cheeses!
