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...

@maya Leuchtturm has very nice notebooks, I agree.

@maya

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 thank you! moleskines have always bled through on me.

@xandra society has progressed past the need for moleskines 😀

@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.

@maya I appreciate learning about competitors, but is there any particular problem with moleskines?

@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

@maya @TQ Is this just them being overhyped, or is there something more specific I’m missing?

(I moved to pocket-sized notebooks a few years ago and really enjoy Field Notes.)

@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!
