Read a few ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ reviews…

If you use any kind of quality pen (Lamy Safari, Waterman fountain pen, etc.) with a Moleskine notebook, you’ll immediately see how terrible the paper quality is on their notebooks. I ordered the Amazon Basics notebook more as a science experiment than anything, to see how the paper quality holds up to fountain pens. I’m happy to report that the paper is heavy, with no bleed-through and little ghosting!

I’ve been using these for a work diary. The grid page rules make a variety of notes, tables, and sketches easy while not being so dark as to be obtrusive. The size makes it easy to slip into a pocket of my laptop bag, and easy to carry the previous volume just in case when starting a new volume.

I’m loving this journal. It’s easy to write in, mark my page (with the ribbon bookmark), and the appearance is classic black. I own about five of these so far – and I now use them as commonplace books. I’M FLYING THROUGH THEM! And they’re holding up well, just like the day I received them. Spines are intact (even after traveling cross country, taking it to the beach, camping, hiking, and even just sitting in the passenger seat with a Coke while the husband drives). The spines are strong as ever, the pages are beautiful, and I’ve never enjoyed writing so much as I do now!
