For just over £6, these A6 notepads are quite expensive and hard to justify a purchase when there are substitutes available which look and feel VERY similar to this - but are cheaper. However, there is just something about Moleskine notepads which hooks me in. Once I made the initial plunge and bought an A5 Moleskine, I never looked back - and couldn't help but purchase this little notebook.
My intention was to keep this in one of my pockets (either on my legs or in my jacket) so that it's easily accessible whenever a bright idea pops into mind. For that purpose, and jotting down little things which you might forget, it's really useful. There's something about having a dedicated 'space' where you can just throw your ideas down which makes them flow a little easier than if you're throwing it into the back of a multi-purpose book.
But yeah. It's expensive. But it is high-quality stuff. For a student, I think something like this is invaluable to have around. 5/5 would recommend.
This is a classic Moleskine notebook, but keep an eye on the size - I thought I was buying an A5 notebook, but this is actually A6. That has some advantages - you can slip it in your pocket, for instance.
As a Moleskine product, this comes with the usual elastic page-holder to keep your notebook open on the right page, or closed, as required. It also has the bookmark and the little paper wallet at the back where you can put your receipts and other scraps.
However, the pages are not numbered, and it has no contents pages at the beginning. It also has no space at the top of each page for the date or titles. This makes indexing and titling your pages more of an effort.
These are really useful features that have been omitted from this particular product. Of course, you can fill in all these missing features by hand, but it is a great feature of the larger notebooks that they are already included.
Overall, this feels just like a little notebook, nothing special, and at £10 doesn't really seem worth the money.
I bought this as a little gift and was really pleased with it. It's a lovely colour and otherwise ticks all the Moleskine boxes (I love their notebooks - a size, style and colour for every purpose!) As usual the paper quality is excellent, the little pocket at the back is useful, as is the page marker ribbon. It has a nice feeling and the recipient enjoys using it. Moleskine books are always exactly what I need, you just have to make sure that it's the size you need and that you get the paper type you need; lined, blank or a combination. Would definitely recommend!
Es miniatura, la publicación no es clara y da la impresión que se trata del tamaño normal. Por el precio puedes comprar la normal. El proceso re reembolso lleva mas tiempo de lo normal. Mala experiencia que pone en tela de juicio todo el servicio post venta de amazon
I cannot express how seriously disappointed I am with this product!!!! I have been purchasing Moleskin for years and when I opened the book to use whilst on holiday recently ( I like to have a spare book to hand for when the current becomes full),I was so, so cross with the quality of the paper! The paper is so thin I am almost afraid to use the book for fear of tearing! Give me the original quality any day!😣😖
Faith in Moleskine restored after purchasing this diary. Replaces Filofax that I thought I could never leave. Appts on left of page, bullet todo list on right. Smaller and lighter than FF, I am a convert! And significantly less expensive than Hobonichi which was my other option.
I have had a paperblank notebook and I thought I would try a different brand to see what is was like.
I have two paperblanks, one small which I use a lot and carry around with me. The other bigger which I leave at home. The small one has got a bit battered, and the cover has come off from the notebook itself (this is wear and tear). The big one is looking still neat at home on the bookshelf.
Now lets talk about size and paper quality-
The same size notebook from Moleskine and Paperblanks are different. The depth of the moleskine is much less than that of a paperblank, PLUS it has more pages. I guess this additional thickness comes from the cover. The Moleskin hard cover looks pretty good and sturdy, only time will tell. The quality and thickness of the paper in both appears to be the same. Neither like my fountain pen very much, even though I have a fine nib. The ink shows through on the following page. On the Paperblank, the ink even fades - not sure if it is the fault of the ink though. I have yet to test this on the Moleskine.
Both have inside envelope sleeves for storage of things.
Moleskine looks very smart / professional, while the Paperblanks have great designs - if size is not too important, then it is a matter of choice of looks as the paper is pretty much the same, but for those who need even the extra couple of mm that the Moleskine can free up in your pocket / small bag then the choice is clear. The weight is about the same.
Moleskine- the book of artists, philosophers and writers. Small and practical, with enough space for your wildest thoughts. Poetry aside, here's my review. I do like the size of the book, it's small enough to slip in my bag, and the elastic loop keeps the pages of the book together in the ebb and flow of detritus that is my bag. The book marker is practical, because I can mark pages wherever I need to. I bought the quadrilled version (the grid like squares on the pages) because I find that they force me to write more legibly. I dig it. There's a small paper pouch to the back where you can put things like receipts or little keepsakes that you tend to gather to you on holiday.
My only drawback is that I wish the paper was a bit thicker. I do like to write with fountain pens, but the paper is just thick enough for the ink not to bleed through. Juuuuust about. In addition, I think the binding is starting to shift (ach, when stuff is made in China, I guess). That being said, I'm satisfied with my purchase.
I buy one of these every Christmas in the same colour (earth brown) for my lovely son in law. He never used to use the presents I got him till I got him this. I had a little thrill of pride when my daughter showed me how he used it for all manner of blokey stuff (diy lists and diagrams/workings etc.). I myself buy a new lime green one every year. They never get tatty or dog eared just remain looking classy and high quality.
