News from Pen-Land

Ok, so it's been a while since I've blogged about pens, I know. I'm getting back into pen-gear, though. Here's what's been going on:

1) Have you checked out the Piccadilly notebooks at Borders? I'm a huge fan of the Moleskine ones, but the price is hefty. So I was in heaven when I saw these in the discount section of my local Borders. For half the price of the Moleskine, I thought it was worth a shot. And it was! This blog features an excellent review and comparison of the two notebooks. So, has anyone else tried it yet? What do you think?

2) I was in England a few weeks ago and stocked up on some fabulous Muji pens. They have these great new gel pens that are cap-less. So you can get the satisfying clicky sensation. I bought several, but the bad news is that my cats went crazy and decided to attack the bag that the muji pens were stored in, thus putting them in the middle of a kitty battle that they couldn't win. They still write just fine - a testament to their durability - but the teeth marks around the sides are kind of distracting... bummer :(

That's the news for now. More soon!
