I started out, back in November, with eight medium-sized notebooks, and did a series of play-offs. We had Life Noble, Leuchtturm, Clairefontaine, Poach My Lobster, Midori A5, Palomino, Waverley, and Alwych.

We're down to the final two... Poach My Lobster v Midori A5.

8 to 1: round two - Clairefontaine Deco v Poach My Lobster

Here's the thing... I did a post on my favourite pocket notebook, partly because it was easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy. And then Stu suggested I did a 'competition' between 8 desk-sized books, with pairs of them going head-to-head and the winners going forward until an overall victor emerges. So, that's what I'm going to do over the next couple of months.

First up: Life Noble Note v Leuchtturm 1917
