Notebooks and possible extrabloggery

I don't suppose anyone has tried any of the soft-cover Moleskine pocket notebooks? I was fondling on in a shop the other day and it did seem rather nice - they feel a little more pocket-friendly than the hard-covers. Even if they don't flip, which is something I am becoming increasingly fond of, as I am now using my current pocket notebook in a very "ticker-tape" way which lends itself to long thin lists.

There's a post there, regarding physical form influencing idea structure.

I was also thinking of starting an actual blog on all of this notebook-related stuff. I have an awful lot more I could write regarding how I've grown to use them recently, and I enjoy reading other people's posts on that sort of topic, and, let's face it, nobody's going to find anything I post on Livejournal, are they?

Do you mean the saddle-stapled cahiers, or have I just been in and out of a bookshop without properly investigating some new, softer leather binding? I have a day planner that's like that, but it's rather a deprecated technology....

No, they have actual soft-bound notebooks now, which seem to be much like the hardbacks but, well, with soft covers (e.g.). Though I was thinking of getting cahiers instead/as well.

I tried one of the soft backs - it was ok - but the innards tend to tear away from the cover more - and I doubt I'll get another one - certainly not when they're the same price as the hardbacks... you might be better off with one of the Rhondia softback books (http://www.flickr.com/photos/grocko/2906937491/) the paper is a lot better for one thing...

Funnily enough I did in the end buy one to replace my previous notebook, now finished, though I've only just started using it so I can't say about the pages falling out. My old hardback one was pretty much okay until right at the end, just before I lost it, when it needed slight attention with scotch tape, but not a lot.

I get away with the paper in the Moleskines generally, I don't know, but perhaps I've never had a notebook with decent paper in it.
