About the Whitelines Squared notebook:

> The binding doesn’t open flat; in fact, it doesn’t really even come close, and this will be a nuisance.

I got this notebook in the mail yesterday, and this is actually a huge problem for me. I wish it was more obvious that this was an issue.

I think it's useful to look at posts like these which compare a variety of options rather than looking at reviews for a single product.

Also the obnoxious "whitelines" at the bottom of each page. I like filling my pages with words, thank you very much.

Yes, the Whitelines notebook is a little bit self-promotional. It makes sure you don't forget that you're holding a Swedish, patented, revolutionary notebook.

+1 on the Mead Cambridge notebook. Plus, you can't beat the price.

Moleskin makes a great pocket notebook. Better than Field Notes, IMO.

Link to the Moleskine pocket notebook?

IMO Moleskine is the Starbucks of notebooks. It's a crowded category, but for me, the Leuchtturm is the clear standout for quality and fit-and-finish, head and shoulders above the Moleskine.
