Quality Notebook - advice

Post by newguy » Sun Jul 26, 2020 8:02 pm

I'm suffering from paralysis by analysis...

Anyone have a decent/preferred notebook brand?

Looking for 200 sheet, 400 page. Would like it to lay flat and have decent enough paper that pens don't bleed through. I prefer more than 365 pages.

I don't mind paying the dollars if it gets me something better than the average wire spiral school notebook.

I look on amazon and all it takes is one negative review to freeze me from a purchase. And every product has at least one negative review.

Many thanks in advance.

I like the cheap ACME blankpage unlined hardcover

And I only use blue pens.

I also like crosswords.

A lot.

I use mine to draw swords and flames and hotrods and mazes.

I enjoy drawing mazes.

What do you draw in yours?

Get yourself a lab notebook. They are made of paper that doesn't bleed, even if you spill sweat or water on it.

Moleskine. Beautifully made, thick paper, lays flat and has a cachet with people like me. That should matter to you.

It doesn't matter to me in the least but that looks righteous.
