For the past months, I’ve been writing on iPad for journalistic assignments, or on free journals from my university in my spare time.
But a couple of days ago, I realized that I’d forgotten to bring extra journals with me home, and that, thusly, I needed new ones.
After mulling for a bit too long in the store, I ended up buying a set of two Moleskine Volants, because it seemed like a good compromise between quality, number of pages and price.
If you don’t care about quality at all, then these are not for you. They are, frankly, way to expensive for that. However, if you want a journal that you can store in your backpack (large) or pocket (small) without worrying about wrecking them, these are for you.
They also come with enough pages (96, large and 82, small), so you won’t run out of pages in the foreseeable future.
As if that wasn’t enough, the first page has a sentence: “In case of loss, please return to:”, underneath which you can fill out your address and a specified amount as a reward. Neat!
Last but not least, the small version comes with detachable pages, and the large version comes with the last sixteen pages detachable. In case you should need it 🙂
One thing I found annoying was that the ridge of the journal was too stiff, making the first page hard to write on, but other than that, I totally love these journals.
