I don’t think it’s a big secret that I’m not a fan of Moleskine notebooks. It’s based purely on my past experiences using fountain pens. The paper is just too inconsistent and I don’t want to do the research to find those few inks that are Moleskine friendly. And what if I don’t have those inks? I have to buy more ink? Then I have to make sure my pens are filled with that ink when I want to write in a Moleskine. No thank you. I’ll stick to paper that works with every ink I’ve ever used.
However, I did come across one of the coolest uses for a notebook I’ve ever seen: a case that holds your writing instruments in a vertical orientation. This would allow very easy access in a backpack, purse, or messenger bag. It does involve chopping up your notebook and making it completely unusable as its intended purpose, but then it wouldn’t really be a hack otherwise. While I would never think about doing this to my Star Wars Moleskine I would do it if I received a regular Moleskine as a gift. What about you? Anyone eager to slice and dice one of their Moleskines?
