WARNING: they're addictive, due to tremendous paper and binding quality, durability and super features like the elastic strap, ribbon marker, and the inimitable little 'tuck-pocket' inside the back cover. They're ALL they're cracked up to be and more! But once you've used one...count on never being able to resist MORE, in all their formats and types! (The Reporter's Notebooks are particularly habit-forming, especially for graduate students like me...) Ah, if there were only MORE than 5 stars to give!

I have used Moleskin 5x8 journals for sometime to jot down my thoughts of the day and various other things that I think I should make note of. The overall quality of this products is really good if not the best excluding the handmade ones that you would find across the ocean in Europe. If you want to save money and have a journal that will last forever this is the journal for you. I plan on buying many of these for my studies that I will be doing in college and definetly for my entries for now on. Great product. You will not regret this if you buy it.

Outstanding quality, a built-in bookmark, lined pages, and small enough to tuck in a backpack or purse. This is EVERYTHING I have ever wanted in a journal! An added bonus is the color - simple black.

Sturdy. Small enough to be packed away in a purse or backpack. Luxurious paper. Small "hideaway" pocket in the back to stow away important (or not so important) documents. The IDEAL journal or notebook for just about any use.

I use my notebook as a travel journal and sometimes I just write in what I'm feeling on random days. My journal has been all over the place, it goes on every trip I take. It is durable and a joy to write in. It travels well because of the slim design and use the back pocket to keep important mementos.

I enjoy every product from Moleskine, the pages are buttery, velvet soft, and supple, and the spine is durable, so the pages won't fall out. Writing on it is always a pleasure because your pen or pencil just glides over the page. Doesn't bleed easily too.

a great idea...so far working out very nicely! I'd recommend this book for a handy place to keep your books you've read listed....

Good size. Durable. Nice paper. Lined at an appropriate width. Overall and an excellent product.

I fill one of these in under a year with daily journaling. Another fills my need for note taking and research ideas - I prefer the quad rulled edition for that purpose. The books are well made and the paper quality is excellent. I use a fountain pen and there is no bleeding. The ribbon place-marker is a useful feature.

Moleskine journals are great. They are small enough to in sure that you always have it with you, yet sturdy enough not to fall apart. I never leave home without it. I keep needed information, lists, and notes on ideas all in one place.

LOVE them, in all sizes. I use them for notes, bible study, making shoping lists, jotting down pattern notes for knitting, If it is a book to use for lists, I start in the middle, so I can tear out pages.

I'm a writer, and though I've adapted to modern technology and have largely gone away from writing thoughts down in favor of logging them into a computer, I saw this Moleskine notebook on sale during Cyber Monday and decided to get it. I've owned them before and of course knew of their quality. In concert with the Moleskin pen, which I also ordered, the notebook now sits on my desk, beside the computer, because I've re-learned that there are some thoughts I just need to commit to paper. There's not a better notebook in the world for that purpose.

Moleskine notebooks are by far the best I've ever used. The overall quality is hardly met by other companies. I would trust these notebooks to guard my ideas forever.

Great notebook, however, the paper quality for fountain pen users is abysmal. Only one side of the page can be used because of bleed through. Not recommended for fountain pen users.

I have used these journals for years; combine them with a handmade leather refillable Moleskine cover from Oberon Design, and I have a journal that will last for decades to come. I go through about 2 of these Moleskine notebooks a year. They are great quality and paper quality is quite nice. Ballpoint and felt pens work very well. The off-white paper color is a nice change from the bright white of most notebooks, and the line spacing is very versatile. Bookmark and back pocket are something I didn't know I wanted until I started using these, now they are a requirement. My only complaint is that some fountain pens bleed through the paper; other than that, these are top-notch. 5 stars.

This is my first Moleskine notebook purchase, and it is exactly as I pictured it to be. It's simple, has an elastic band, a gray ribbon bookmark inside, and the moleskine logo etched into the bottom of the back cover. I can see myself buying more of these simple, yet beautifully crafted notebooks for my future journals. It's the best.

I love my moleskine! I'm a college student and I am always jotting things down to remember them. It's the perfect size and fits in my hand bag. Its also really durable. I always get compliments on it when i pull it out. It was a little expensive for a notebook, but I've used it enough to get more then my money out of it.

Moleskine products will never disappoint. I have been carrying a small ruled notebook in my pocket for years to jot down notes and reminders to myself. I like the journal for copying down longer quotes from books in a commonplace book for later reference.

I use this journal every day personally in my studies. I have at least a dozen of them, and I will buy more as the need arises. I like the size and the quality of paper and cover.
