In light of the fountain pen thread (which has me dusting off my pens and seeing if I can get them going again) I’m in the market for some more notebooks.
I have been using the Moleskin, pocket size, soft cover, ruled notebooks for lots of things for a long time. However, I’m a bit disappointed that the elastic straps lose their stretch even just sitting around. I like them for the closure. I also really like and use the ribbon marker but wish there were 2 on occasion. I like the multiple colors that they come in. I am not as fond of the paper. It seems to take a long time for the ink to dry. I’ve been using Pilot G-2 gel pens lately because I like how they write and I take lots of notes. I may go back to one or more fountain pens.
I took a look at the Baron Fig notebooks but the soft cover ones are too small, with too few pages in them .
What other choices are there for notebooks in the roughly 3 x 5 inch size, about 100 pages, with soft covers that come in a variety of colors with elastic or similar closures that actually work over time? They need to lie flat for writing and have Bonus if they have paper that is thick enough for me to use fountain pens.
