So, I had a slight panic attack at Target tonight when I realized they are no longer stocking Miquel Rius notebooks. As late as last week, they stocked them in three sizes; four- and six- subject A4 size, and four-subject A5 size.
You know how you can just tell the difference between writing on a piece-of-garbage ten-cent Mead notebook and really nice paper? Well, Miquel Rius notebooks are really nice paper. These notebooks plus Sharpie pens equals Absolute Writing Bliss.
I own three of them; a four-subject A5 that’s basically full from notetaking at the insane number of meetings I have to attend at work, an A5 that’s still basically empty, and a four-subject A4 that I bought just because I loved the A5 I was taking meeting notes in so much, and for basically no other reason. It’s still empty.
And now they’re gone. Dammit. Small towns are awesome. I guess I’ll have to start hunting them down on the Internet, like everything else worthwhile.
However, one bright point to the removal of my beloved Miquel Rius notebooks from Target – in their place tonight were Rhodia 80-page reverse books and No. 12-ish pads. They were both of the graph-paper variety, which will be fun but not quite the same as the Miquel Rius books. I’ll be interested to try one out.
Notebooks are fun…
