Inspired by Cam’s enthusiastic review of the moleskine I have been itching to get my hands on one. I’m a stationary geek – to the extent that I will make a trip to a stationary shop with no intention of buying anything just to fondle the nice paper and pens – so the moleskine appeals to me on several levels.

So I’ve been nagging Colin to buy me one for a month now and finally after dragging him into borders under false pretenses and parking him in front of them he caved in and bought me one all the time grumbling that “it doesn’t even have a soft cover” “you mean the only point of these is that they have an expandable pocket and they lie open flat” and “its pretty expensive for a notebook”.

I am of course pleased as punch with it and I’ve spent rather too much time stroking the pages going “oooh smooth….” but the real concern is the best way to implement gtd using it.

I was thinking that I’d use it for capture and stick to electronic methods for processing and next actions etc. Similar to Patrick’s method. Once I’ve been playing, sorry, working with it for a couple of weeks I’ll let you know how its going.

But now I’m curious…

How to you use your moleskine???

    Kinda hard when the girl has no money. I quit my job during the semester because the workload was too high at uni. I’m entirely financially dependent.

    I’m also entirely financially dependent… on my job! :-pOn the plus side, the moleskine was relatively good value for money given the huge smile, giggle, and the bouncy bouncy joy it gave mim.I’d like them a lot better if they had lovely silky soft flexible leather covers, so you could roll them up like Indiana Jones.

    The whole point of having a hard cover is that you can write on them without needing to put them on a hard surface :-p

    Ok I do know that the spelling for paper etc is different from not moving but I can never remember which ones which. Not only am I an engineering student, I also have ADHD and sequencing problems. I even spell very, verry on a regular basis despite knowing what the correct spelling is because I sort of just write it that way and then notice that its wrong.
