My Review:

There’s always this discount bookstore at the outlet mall and they seem to have a whole section of Picadilly notebooks – that’s where I picked up my copy. This brand has been around forever and I remember it from my teen years (which was only about 3 years ago, right?). The footprint of this notebook is narrower than a true A5 notebook so you’ve got less space to write, but it seems more portable than some of the others. I like that the lines are narrow and the ink of the lines isn’t too dark so it feels good to write on the pages. There must be a coating on the paper because even the heaviest of inks doesn’t feather on the page. If you’re looking for something that has a small form factor and works fine with lightweight pens (like the Sharpie Pen or ballpoint ink) this is a great option.
