I love everything about Moleskines. Here’s my square-ruled one.
I’ve actually been an admirer for a long time, but I think it was Sacha Chua writing about networking with Moleskines last year which tipped me over the edge. I don’t (yet) use her page number hyperlink system, but I do agree with her about the power and convenience of paper.
Rachel uses a plain notebook for taking notes and sketching when she’s out researching. She also has an 18 month weekly diary which I really like the look of. Amazon has a good range of Moleskines. There’s a nice list of hacks at 43 Folders once you get the right one for you. One thing I’d I’d really like to try is the idea of using one as a laptop drive enclosure.
Time to go shopping again soon.
