Last summer I had a complete and total computer meltdown. And, I found out that I was no longer able to write original text by hand. I edit on paper and take notes in a notebook (my favorite is the Moleskine lined reporter's notebook), but writing? I have to type now.

At the time of the computer collapse, I sent a question out into the sphere about how you write and got a ton of great comments about the physical act of writing. (I also put an original poem out there--Requiem for a Laptop--a poem my beloved family laughed at. Thanks a lot, you guys.)

Today I want to return to the physical act of writing and ask you all: which are your favorite notebooks and why?
