please stop buying moleskines....... if you want something Italian, fabriano is nice..... if you really like the moleskines, piccadilly does the same thing but better... if you want a recognizable name for a gift or something, leuchtturm is well known now...
Journaling is one of those things which got eaten by pandemic brain. I have a leuchtturm with a grid I should dig out.
@emma it's so hard!! but one thing is that writing the date and the day of the week out before i write anything on the notebook page is genuinely the main way I have a chance of knowing what day it is
@maya oh cool, i didn't even know about picadilly :) my issue with leuchtturm is the visible branding on the notebook.
even found this dotgrid variant of picadilly's journals :3
@cblgh very fair, I don't love branding either but I also always decorate my notebooks so much that it isn't a problem to cover.
@mpjgregoire Basically the paper quality sucks relative to the price/hype, whether you're using a non-ballpoint pen or a pencil (but they're so hyped they get given as gifts). Worthwhile for anyone who likes them to *try* something like Piccadilly in the equivalent size to see if it works as well
@a Basically the paper quality sucks relative to the price/hype, whether you're using a non-ballpoint pen or a pencil. Field Notes are great!
