I also use their "weekly notebook." It's a daytimer and it's perfect. I have used Moleskine for a few years now.

HASH(0xa2a351bc) out of 5 stars Things Fall Apart Jan. 22 2009
By Cecily Walker - Published on
Format: Journal
I've come to rely on Moleskine notebooks for work, personal use, for design mock-ups, and to organize the thoughts in my head. The hard cover ones add weight to a bag, so when I found out about the soft cover version, I was thrilled.

That thrill didn't last very long.

Because the notebook doesn't lie flat, you have to crack the spine if you want to use the notebook on a flat surface. After doing that once, the cover came off. I tried using library binding glue to reattach my cover, but to no avail; the cover just won't go back on.

Not only that, but the back pocket in the soft cover version isn't as sturdy as the pocket in the hardcover editions, and it easily detaches from the back cover.

All in all, these are only worthwhile if portability/weight is more important than longevity.

HASH(0xa2a35210) out of 5 stars Fell apart many times. Sept. 22 2008
By kichijoji - Published on
Format: Journal
I hate rating anything Moleskine lower than 4 stars, but I have to. As with the previous commenter, the entire cover fell off. I super-glued it back on, and it fell off again. Then I tried a hot glue gun, and it worked... halfway (it is already half "off" again). The bottom part of the little pocket in the back is splitting as well, and some of my little papers are falling out. This is my "work" notebook and stays there; I don't throw it around and carry it everywhere or anything. I'll be getting a hardcover next time.

HASH(0xa2a35648) out of 5 stars Not The Best Aug. 12 2008

The pages fall out and the binding fails after a couple of weeks in your pocket. Get the hard cover.

HASH(0xa2a35630) out of 5 stars Compared to the hard cover version Dec 12 2008
By Bertilak - Published on
Format: Journal
I have both the soft and the hard cover versions of this. (This one is the soft cover version. The hard cover version is at Moleskine Ruled Notebook Pocket.)

They are both great but I prefer the hardcover. Neither the soft nor the hard cover versions open to lie completely flat as would a wire-bound notebook, making them a little harder to write in when conditions are less than ideal. The hardcover is a little easier to hold in one hand in a way to provide a convenient and solid writing surface.

Also, the "elastic closure" on the hard cover is a little more substantial. I have more confidence that it will continue to provide a firm closure over time. I think they had to make the elastic on the soft cover a little lighter so as not to deform the soft cover.

I therefore give the hard cover five stars and the soft cover (this one) four stars.

HASH(0xa2a35af8) out of 5 stars Hmmm- never had the falling apart issue Dec 8 2009
By Artemis - Published on
Format: Journal
I've never had these little gems fall apart- but I tend not to open them flat and instead curl the cover around the back- which you would think would make it fall apart too- but I guess I don't bend the spine- but only curl the cover around to get at my page of interest. I also tend to go through them pretty fast- so maybe they don't get the wear and tear of being opened and closed a lot.

I use both the lined and unlined ones.

From the other reviews- there are clearly some durability issues- but for lightweight flexible travel use (e.g. if you're writing on a bus in the middle of Peru)- these are fantastic because of their ability to be stashed away in any pocket/small bag and their ablility to curl it for cramped space use.

I have the hardcover ones too- but don't tend to take those when I travel as they are less flexible for sticking in odd places like pockets, and not as easy to hold in one hand while writing. I primarily use the hardcovers on desktops or tables. The hard cover can be useful too if you prefer a harder writing surface if you are writing in your lap- or in the car (not while the car is moving- mind you!)

So- based on my standard travel use, the flexi ones are my preference, but the hardcover ones have been great for me for general stay-at-home or around-the-town use. (So, perhaps use for business would probably be best served by hardcover.)
