196. Gadget of the day 6

It’s been a while since I’ve had a gadget of the day. Today is more of a stationary item of the day. I’m a fan a moleskine books and the number of index markers mine have hanging out of them is a standing joke.

Now I’ve discovered Leuchtturm 1917 books.

Just like basic moleskine books they come in plain, lined and squared paper versions. Just like moleskine they are hardback, have an elastic closure and wallet in the back cover.

Unlike moleskine books, they have a blank index and every page is numbered. This makes finding specific notes really easy and doesn’t require excessive sticky tabs. You can also get pen loops, so you don’t lose your favourite pen. I definitely think my notes look more professional/organised now: Left has 17 sticky tabs, right has an index.

You can purchase both moleskine and Leuchtturm books from most big stationers or online.
