```text I’m not an paper expert in any way or form, this is just some thoughts and experiences I have collected during the last 2-3 years. ```

```text There are three different things that you need to take into consideration when you are looking for a new notebook, and more specifically the paper in it. I usually look at it in the form of the following triad ```

```text
  • Thin paper
  • Short dry time
  • Little bleed through
  • ```

    ```text Pick two. ```

    ```text It isn’t hard to find thin paper with no bleed through, but it will take a while before the ink dries. And it isn’t hard to find thick paper with short dry time and little bleed through. ```

    ```text There are exceptions to the rule. But my experience is that You need to pick two of the three. ```
