    Bamboo Notebooks by Writersblok | OfficeSupplyGeek - great for sticking in your pocket and jotting down ideas. I still like real paper!!

  • Earl Gray

    I use the small pocket notebook version of these. The paper is made of bamboo, and has a nice, tactile feel. The covers are flexible and can be wiped off easily, and hold up well to actually being carried in your pocket. The ones I like come in a four pack of yellow, bright green, black and a very close to primary red. A friend gave me a red one for Christmas this year and I'm using it for haiku. I still like Moleskine for a full-sized journal . . . these little ones are far better to the soft covered Moleskines by a wide margin. Inexpensive and a great feel, and its fun to know that because they are made from sustainable bamboo, too - its nice to be green!

My friend Mo is a barista. She bought me this mug because it's the perfect size for my favorite drink, a quad espresso. Great heart, great design!

My favorite pen - deep black, never skips, dries immediately (important because I'm left-handed) and a clean, fine line. I carry an extra so I can give them away to other pen freaks, too. If you journal or write notes in the books you're reading, I think this could be a great pen for you, too.

I received one of these as a Christmas gift from a friend who is a barista. It makes two large mugs of excellent coffee, and it is a fun gadget to use. 30% post-consumer plastic, too, so its also fairly green!
