I’ve tried the Moleskine regular large plain notebook and the Moleskine x-large lined Cahier (black) for a few weeks now, and I definitely like the Cahier better.
People either attack the Cahier for feeling "cheap" or praise it because it’s more "casual." But my reason for preferring the Cahier is more specific and practical. Unlike the regular Moleskines, the Cahier lies FLAT against a table, like a thin sheaf of papers, as opposed to a hardcover book. This makes it much more comfortable to write notes on, in my opinion, than on the regular Moleskine notebooks with the hardcover binding.
Any Cahier fans out there agree?
