    I bought a pack of two Moleskines a while back. I prefer dot grid. You saved me some future money. I prefer fountain pen friendly paper. I started using the Moleskine before I bought my first fountain pens. Then I bought Field Notes. Some FN works better than others with fountain pens. Sadly the FN dot grid I bought was not fountain pen friendly either. The Rhodia so far is the best fountain pen friendly dot grid I've found. But I like the size of the Moleskine, or FN better. The Rhodia pad I have is very small. It also opens from the top. I prefer a side opening notebook. Thanks for the review on this. I really appreciate it.

    I also just found out that Moleskine writing notebooks are not fountain pen friendly.

    The feathering is not that bad (in my opinion) but the bleed-through is bad.

    I can't use the other side of the page.

    Yeah...I just live with the one-sided aspect. I've got a Mole pocket notebook (lined, though) serving now as my bag-crafting notebook. Not much bleed, major show-through.

    I have never had luck with Moleskines and fountain pens, even using fine nibs. I would always point to Rhodia for fountain pen use as the clairefontaine paper is very fountain pen friendly. I have moleskines and use pencil or biro with them though I still get some show through and ghosting with both those. They are a nice design but I don't rate the paper much.

    The planners works fairly well for me.
    Except the slim panoramic weekly planner, but that one got thinner paper.

    The notebook paper bleed through.

    Default Moleskine Dot Grid Notebook

    I have an issue on pronouncing the Moleskine name. I was told there is no right or wrong way to say it; however, I feel the "mole-skin" pronunciation is too pedestrian. So, I find myself making it exotic (mole-uh-SKEEN-ay) or "mole-SKEEN." Thoughts?

    If you Google 'how to pronounce Moleskine you get several entries and among those is one that says the Company is asked this question frequently. There is no specifically correct way, and that's what they like about it.

    Some say mole skin, some say mole skina, some say mole skeen, some say mole uh skin. Say it however you like and be happy.

    I used a Moleskine dot grid notebook (or is it journal?) in a format they call "Chapters". It is a bit thinner than the standard large cahier. I think it fits a Midori traveler's notebook size. Anyway, I sued it for a travel journal. I enjoyed having the easy-to-find chapter divisions. That allowed me to keep separate types of things handy. So one chapter was all the flight details and all arrival and departure times and all confirmation numbers and details like that. And other chapters were date-based notes about the places I visited. When I returned home, the little notebook became a great resource for recalling events from travel.

    I used X-Feather ink and an Ahab pen (without flexing it) so feathering and bleed through were no issue. Also - and this is strictly a personal thing - I never write on the left hand page, only on the right page. It is odd, I guess, but I was trained to do that by my physics professor. He insisted on that for our lab notebooks.
