It’s inspired

I pay more than I probably should for notebooks. Since I am more of a note taker/idea scribbler than laptop document creator (although, I have a lot of them too), my notebooks are abundant. More specifically, they are everywhere. In an effort to hide the clutter messes I create, I’ve fallen to buying pretty notebooks. They are much nicer to look at than yellow legal pads and ordinary spiral notebooks (I have those too though. In drawers).

The beauty of these notebooks, besides the obvious, is that they have an almost beckoning effect. They plead to be picked up, written in and read through.

Just one of my small pleasures.

  1. Oh I love notebooks too. I have had to make a rule to use one at a time tho as everytime I started a new project I would start another one – seen as I always have things im ‘working on’ this amounted to quite a few.

    Do you find you have to be careful though? I was given the most amazing notepad, with real handmade scratchy paper, really beautiful, but such a waste. I couldnt write in it, thought it would destroy it!

  2. Ha. They are a must-have.

    Notebooks are both a blessing and a curse for me. They are great for all my brainstorms and spur of the moment ideas but bad for all my brainstorms and spur of the moment ideas;)
    They add to and take away from being scattered. I have too many;) But… that’s okay.

    And yes, those beautiful ones with the hand made paper–gorgeous. I don’t write in those either.

    Hope your proofreading is going well!

  4. I found mine at Barnes and Noble. But you can also find them online at book retailers since so many mom & pop bookshops are on the down slope.
