This is just a short list of what a A5 notebook should be like in order to be the most useful to me









  • Lined or grid





  • I prefer lined for long form writing and dot grid for tasks.





  • Hardcover; because it is much more convenient when I write somewhere I don’t have a flat surface available.





  • At least two markers





  • I prefer three





  • The paper should be good; Leuchtturm1917 or Rhodia quality is the standard I expect.





  • And then I mean both paper quality and shorter dry time.
