I love cute small notebooks, and I always need a new supply, as I use them to jot down notes when I visit a new place, an art gallery, and when I go to a lecture. When I travel I go through a number of thin ones, as I visit various museums, jotting quickly so as not to hold up too much my travel partner. I also try to record, as quickly as I can, daily events (of which there are so many on a trip) and some observations at the end of the day. Now and then, I also use notebooks for journal entries.
I've always been like this. Well, since my teenage days. In the beginning I didn't pay much attention to what memo books I used, because there wasn't much to choose from here in Romania in the early nineties. Any blank travel notebook did the job. Well, but then, when I got to travel abroad, I discovered cute notebooks. And I was hooked.
