Trend: Moleskine Notebooks

That's right folks, even in this age of BlackBerries, Treos and iPhones, the old school Moleskine notebook is making a comeback. According to Buzz Feed, my source for all things hip and hot, leather-bound notebooks are gaining a cult following as a low-tech PDA. GTD freaks and creative types - and those who are both - love the mini form factor of the Moleskine.

Sure, they don't have spell check, a web browser, calendar and built in calculator, but Moleskine notebooks (pronounced 'mol-a-skeen'-a') offer a place for us to exercise our most important geek muscle: our minds. Of course it helps that Moleskine journals have a history of popularity with artists, writers, intellectuals and travelers. How trendy are they? Companies like Moleskine US have gotten into the game by creating collection after collection of notebooks, including a line named after trendy cities like Paris, Prague, Rome, New York City and Barcelona. They cost $16.

I love Moleskine books - I have several. I have the NYC city guide and have recorded my memories from two trips there. I hope to get back there soon and add to the good memories. I also use the 18month planner and have several of the new volant books. These are the perfect notebooks!

My little secret, I write all my passwords down in a moleskin. It will never crash and I can always access it, and it feels so sexy LOL.

I bought one of these for an ex boyfriend. He was not at all into anything material and this was the perfect gift. He loved it. Write on!

I love to write in notebooks...it's so much more personal than typing letters into something electronic.

There's something fun about having a little notebook and a pen, rather like the little diaries one would keep as a girl.

My Moleskine address book is sitting on my desk as I write this. There is no better backup than having it on paper. I love the Moleskine brand.

I love pocket journals and have always had one with me for the past 3 years! Rarely doers anything actually important goes in besides the random mess of neurosis that is my overactive mind but I rarely forget anything carrying it around! I'm almost in need of a re-up so I'm eying this from Etsy http://www.moleskine.com/eng/_interni/catalogo/Cat_int/catalogo_cahiers.htm

As much as I love technology, I adore having a pencil and paper for doodles, lists and journaling. That can't be replicated in electronic form.

I love my Moleskin as well - everytime I write in it, I feel like I'm divulging all my secrets in a luxurious little notebook! I think I had one for every year I was in college ...

Whenever I take a major vacation, I always take a notebook to jot down memories. It's great to read them later. It's surprising what you forget.
