I just bought two Rhodia pads (2.9" x 4.1")at Target and all of this size and one size larger is in graph form instead of just lined. Only the larger journal size is offered in lined or graph form. I know that I will like the pads I bought but I do not like the graph format. They are the right size though to fit in my shirt pocket and that is the reason that I bought them.

I keep one in my purse - I love the Rhodia graph paper. I didn't know that Target carried them. Thanks! :thumbup:

I have seen some smaller ones in lined format (whatever size is close to 4" x 6") at my local independent office supply store, but from what I can tell, the variety of combinations is such that few single B&M sources are likely to stock the whole line. Our member biffybeans works for these folks now and I bet she'd be willing to answer your questions about what combinations are available.
I came here for the pictures and stayed for the conversation.

If you're talking about the orange & black stapled notepads, nearly all sizes are available in both graph and lined. You can view all the options in the Exaclair catalog on page 4 & 5: http://www.exaclair.com/catalog.shtml. Exaclair is the US importer of Rhodia products.

We have Target in Australia. I must lookout for the Pads. The Croxley paper I use comes in many sizes, I have most of them but currently only using one pad size. I need to get out more.

I don't know why but I prefer the graph vs. the ruled pads.

I prefer the graph as well, but I wish the lines on the paper were less obtrusive. The new dot grid paper may be an interesting alternative.

I hear ya about obtrusive lines on the grid. I prefer grids on size 14, but anything bigger just doesn't feel right. Lined Rhodia pads have never done anything for me; blank or grid, please. The dot pad is excellent, too. I picked up a few size 16 dot pads and absolutely love them. I would have been thrilled to have these as a kid (my siblings played a lot of dot games to pass the summers and occasional road trips of our youth).

YES!! I remember doing those dot games!!! My whole extended family is in Connectcut but my family lives in Virginia, so several times a year as a kid, I would spend 8-10 hours in the car (each way). My sister and I would make these large dot grids and play games where you connect two dots to make a line, taking turns. When you were the one to draw a line that completed a box, you put your initial in it. You'd go until all the 'boxes' were claimed, and whoever had the most boxes won! Wow...I haven't thought about that game in YEARS. These pads would have been perfect for that!!! Gosh....kids these days just have it so easy :doh:

W00t! Target caries Rhodia pads! I need these as I have developed CRS and have to write everything down, lest I forget...

My local Target carries the Reverse Book and the No. 18 graph pad (R18200), but that's it. I've seen pictures of other Targets that have a much more extensive selection.

Think of the ReverseBook as also seen at Target. It's square and wirebound. It's also graph instead of lined. That's because it's freely-oriented. Therefore, you can choose to write wire-side up or wire-side left (or right). A big help to lefties. Also clever for organization (say, notes are in one orientation, work or poetry in another).

The little notepads are much of the same, except since they aren't square, it makes even more sense that it's graph. I use staple-side up (thin side) for short notes, observations, etc. Then I can freely-rotate the notepad to staple-side left (wide side) for long strands of thought, poetry, long observations, etc. I personally find this great as I seem to have spurts of both throughout the day, and it's not hard to switch my notepad to the side to read these notes.

Of course, this works best with graph paper, hence why I prefer Rhodia notepads. Try it out when you have more than just a small thought to write down. You may just find you quite like it!
