    Why I use Moleskine? Because it makes me want to write and not forget how my penmanship looks like in days like these where computers have taken over.

  2. Camila Arruda says:

    Busy mind, running thoughts every single second of the day. My Moleskine is my break! When I’m in it, I’m in it!

  3. Marcelo says:

    My shrink, my imagination, my everyday companion. In it I am whatever I can, I am with myself, I am free. Without it I forget, I am lost, I am alone.

  4. Alice June says:

    To have a trace of my ideas for crafts, my tests for cook recipes, my lists of everything I need to remember. And it shows my life is full of lovely things and projects after having gone through hell. Maybe my moleskine is my own piece of heaven…

    It’s the paper — smooth, thick and just begging to be written or sketched on.

    Why I use Moleskine: Because sometimes my blog just doesn’t cut it.

    No, really. The feel of a new page is awesome to me and being able to write my personal thoughts on it feels liberating.

  8. Ming A. says:

    When I put a pen on MOLESKINE, my thoughts e.g. cool idea, sad mind, imagination and everything, flow through non-stop as it helps to pull my mind inside brain which isn’t easy to bring on onto it… I can say MOLESKINE is like my half part and I can’t live without it!

  9. Gustavo says:

    I could make another question as a reply: why my Moleskine uses me? Jokes aside, as Hannah Arendt stressed once, you only have a life if you got stories to tell. My Moleskine is a train for stories and to avoid to fading…

    when i write with fountain pen in hand, it’s total old school. and i can bring it with me everywhere … no battery, no plug needed.

  11. Wener Marq says:

    Because it shows me how I think and when I tought, ocasionally…

  12. synical says:

    I use a Moleskine because I’m not likely to throw it out because of how much I paid for it 😛

  13. Allan Chester says:

    It’s my best friend, I guess. Something, not someone, I can just be ‘me’ with. As long as I have a pen, hehe.

  14. Elaine says:

    The smooth, thick paper holds ink very well, the cover is attractive & durable. Moleskines are the perfect mix of form & function.

  15. Janaina says:

    I use it because it fits my secrets. And once he was completely wet by a bottle of water meanwhile I was at the gym and the next day it was like nothing happened. it was a mix of the desire to write in something traditional, but since then I have a proof that is really good and resistant. ;-P
