I pick up this #8 size notebook for jotting quick notes, groceries list, and notes for my pen review. I like the slim size long but just right for my bag. Not bulky, but enough paper to make this notepad a worthy one plus the quality paper of Rhodia. I am very picky when it comes to paper and this is one brand that fits the bill. I use Rhodia paper in my writing review as well. Larry’s Fountain Pens.
