Upcoming Giveaway: My Unused Moleskines

After getting into fountain pens as a hobby, I discovered that the vast majority of my stock of Moleskine notebooks, which worked fine with Pilot G2 pens, don’t work very well with fountain pens and my preferred inks.

As a result, I’m be giving away all of my unopened (still in the shrinkwrap) Moleskine notebooks.

The list:

Set of two ruled Volant notebooks, pocket size, light and dark green (gone to Rebecca)
Set of two ruled Volant notebooks, large size, light and dark green (gone to a neighbor)
Set of two ruled Volant notebooks, large size, light and dark blue (gone to Jonas)
Set of three squared Cahier journals, large size, red (gone to Sarah)
Set of three squared Cahier journals, large size, blue (gone to Hellenek)
Large hardcover squared notebook, black (gone to Titivillus)
Large hardcover ruled notebook, red (gone to Mrs. Bill)

I’ve not yet decided on what my Moleskine replacement will be, but I’m leaning towards something that uses Rhodia/Clairefontaine paper.

Update: All of the Moleskines are spoken for. Enjoy!

Pens, Paper, and Notebooks Oh My

I am a pen, notebook, and organizational junkie.

Here’s my current collection of Moleskine notebooks:
My Moleskine Notebooks

My normal pen of choice is the Pilot G2 gel pen, in either 0.7mm (“Medium”) or 1.0mm (“Bold”) widths. I also like the Pilot Varsity disposable fountain pens, and bought a pack of Sharpie Pens today to try them out.

I also ordered a Lamy Safari fountain pen to try out something a little nicer than the Pilot disposables.

The Doane Paper concept looks great; I’m surprised nobody has come up with the idea before.

Update: My Doane Paper notebooks have come in; will do a comparison of them with the Field Notes and Moleskine equivalents with multiple pens next week (probably with the Lamy Safari, the Pilot Varsity, a Pilot G2, and the Sharpie Pen).

Second Update: Notebook Stories has named me their Notebook Addict of the Week.
