    REPAIR:

    With every moleskine I've owned, the pocket and "inside spine" has torn before the moleskine is ready to be replaced.

    I do a simple mod where I remove the existing pocket (just rip it off)
    and replace it with a tyvek pocket. (fed-ex or usps envelope)

    I then add a small strip of tyvek to the inside of the spine.

    All this can be done with a glue stick in less than 30 minutes.

    I can't take credit for the idea. Plenty of people here on EDCF have mentioned dropping a bandage or two into their wallets, I just moved that idea over to a device I'd have with me while outdoors. Seeing as I've recently had frequent need for my pocket first aid kits.

    Good to know, B.S. Thank you :) I'll keep some TyVek around just in case.

    As a truck driver, I use mine to write down directions for every stop. I only write in them with pencils and I keep a folded piece of construction paper behind the page I'm writing on to prevent the next page getting " brailled "
    For me it's a great system as these journals are constructed really well.

    Some pics of my new Japanese Moleskine I received for Father's Day:

    The second shot I am about 9 feet away from the cover. I just layed it out on the carpet and took a pic.
    I don't know why I wanted one of these, I just always have. Moleskines are cool, and this one is really cool. :)
    Thanks for looking.

    Got my Hong Kong edition city notebook last night. I went to two stores to try and find them, both of which the Moleskineasia website indicated carried city notebooks. The first store had about 4 Moleskines (total) in it. I considered purchasing a $12 Moleskine diary for one of my students, but decided to get her something else.

    Went to another store after work and they had a bunch of Moleskines, but no HK editions on the rack. I asked someone who worked there and she said they were coming out on the 26th. I told her the website said they'd be out on the 24th. I told her I'd just get one on the website since they were already available directly from Moleskineasia. I turned to leave and spotted them on a table next to me. She didn't even know they had 'em! The price on the back was $108 Hong Kong Dollars, which I thought was a great deal as the website said they'd go for $188. I went to the register and she ran up and said they are supposed to be $188, and she'd have to charge me that. I told her if I was in the US, they'd have to charge me the $108 the sticker said it was. I wasn't too happy, so I complained to both Moleskineasia and the store, of which I am a regular customer.

    Within two hours (around 11pm), Moleskineasia replied and said they were sorry. I'd also pointed out a few errors in the HK edition. They told me to pick out any Moleskine I wanted from the catalog and I could have it for free as a token of their appreciation. I chose a soft, plain notebook (pocket sized). I will now EDC two Moleskines. :)

    I just ordered myself 2 moleskines; one reporters book, and one hard cover. I will decide which one I will be taking with me to my new job.

    The store I bought the HK edition from (www.citysuper.com) called and said they will give me an $80 refund ($10 US approx). They said they now do the same thing as US retailers and only charge customers what the price on an item is if they make an error. :)

    Yes it is, but I probably saved them a bundle by letting them know they labeled the items wrong. :)

    The Moleskine Memo Pockets is a handy product. It's a mini-accordian folder great for coupons, receipts, directions, computer password info...etc. in a 3/12 inch by 51/2 inch package.

    I have a few of their products, always takes me an age to use them because i don't want to mess them up by writing in them.

    The more you write in them the more beautiful they become.

    Well, I FULLY intend on using them! One is going to work. I couldn't decide on which one I wanted to use for work, so I bought both. I AM going to take the "reporter" one with me to work.

    I use Moleskines primarily for a daily journal. I used to be so concerned about making mistakes (spelling or otherwise) but not so much anymore. If I make a mistake I just mark a couple of lines through it and keep going. I do write somewhat carefully as I want my family in the years ahead to be able to read it easily. I use a Uniball Signo 207 Micro and it works great with the Moleskine acid free paper.

    I used Moleskines for a while, but have gone back to the good old fashioned mini marble notebooks. On top of that, I even give it the old-school brown paper bag book cover (just a bit of packing tape on the spine). Cheap, small, thin, works great. I've been thinking about doing a leather or rayskin cover, but I think it may make it too thick.
