"A lot of people sort of twist their notebooks when they write in them, this notebook has lines that are at a 45 degree angle- good if you have to write in a tight spot, like on an airplane."

That's a good idea! If you're writing some kind of slanted script, this will help.

That's interesting!
I'm also one of those who twist the paper.
But I imagine it to be somehow strange when you read your notes again.
Otherwise, nice idea!

Looks cool!!! Sounds good in theory, but I concur that reading back the notes would be an interesting experience.

I get the idea, but the varying line lengths, especially at the short ends, would drive me batty.
I came here for the pictures and stayed for the conversation.

Interesting. When I journal I actually write on the lines. Whenever I write notes I always wirte on the diagonal. If I used blank page journals I
would probably write diagonally as well. The real question is: Why does one write diagonally even when the page may have horizontal lines? I don't do it because of the orientation of the page. I have a friend who writes her letters on the diagonal. Why do we do this?

I always write at an angle.

It must be possible to print those lines with MS-Word. Anybody?

Let there be light. Then let there be a cat, a cocktail, and a good book.

You'd have to print oversize and then trim -- unlikely you can get good edge-to-edge printing out of MS Word and a desktop printer...
