I have had the paperblanks range, quite good, with magnetic closing and whilst a few good designs some terribly gaudy ones. Then there's the rather overrated Moleskin range, although I do like the beige covered wide exercise type books, which feel substantial. Then I was in the British Library today and found myself leaving the studiousness of the reading room for a break only to spend half an hour examining the look and feel, aura even, of the Alice in Wonderland range. But there is one I quite like, and it's a thinner than A4 size exercise book, beige cover, and it's a science book, one side ruled, the other side graphed, the paper is a bit too thin but if only I could get it made up thicker.
Maybe I should just return to my laptop, where I do most of my writing anyway. There's a lesson there methinks.
