“Always tucked in a pocket of my purse is a Moleskine journal. I try to write every day, no matter what, and I’ve pulled that Moleskine out while waiting for my kids—doctor’s appointments, soccer practices, piano lessons. In my Moleskine, I allow myself the freedom to write anything. No matter the inanity—it has my full permission to go down uncensored. I doodle. I make lists. I describe the waiting rooms, piano lessons, parents in the stands. And if I lose my Moleskine, my name and phone number are displayed, with a reward offered of one billion dollars.”
Victoria Patterson, author of This Vacant Paradise (Counterpoint, 2011)

    I love my Moleskine. Before my Moleskine era, I never finished a whole journal. Now, I am working on my third Moleskine journal! I am glad to have come upon this wonder of a journal and I hope to continue buying them for the rest of my life.

    Hi Victoria,

    Like yourself, I also love Moleskine. I take mine with me everywhere I go and don't know what I would do without it!

    Lately, I have gotten very into accessories with the purchase of a brand new leather moleskine cover form Molecover ( http://www.molecover.com ).

    I have followed these guys 2 years on Twitter, and finally pulled the trigger and bought one of their Moleskine covers. It's natural bound leather adds quite a bit of class and it protect my Moleskine. I love it, and have no regrets in my purchase!
