On Keeping a Lot of Notebooks


"…despite my adoration of electronic gadgetry, I am also a notebook person. My infatuation with notebooks started when I was a child: a family member would give me the little pocket sized diaries that she received each year as a member of the Harvard Coop. They were great little notebooks, with a week at a view, and lots of extra pages with space for addresses, measurement conversions, lists of holidays, etc. I would carry one of these with me everywhere, writing down whatever little things I could think of to write. (Since I was, after all, a kid, I was often frustrated at my lack of important things to write down– I didn’t go to any meetings, I didn’t have many expenses to track, and spying on the neighbors didn’t really result in clues to any mysteries that I might be required to solve.)"
