I've got a spare A5 Clairefontaine notebook that I currently have no use for.

What should I do with it?

Wait until your other notebooks are full. Then you'll have use for it!  :lol:  :rolleyes:

Send it to me! 




Just kidding, of course. I already have more notebooks than I know what to do with myself. Having said that, though, there are tons of purposes to which a notebook might be dedicated. Search around here or on some of the pen/ink/paper blogs and you'll see.

Does it have good paper? If yes, put it on your shelf. In my experience, running out of paper and having to wait days to get a shipment is more annoying than stockpiling notebooks on my shelf :)

What! Only one spare notebook! Buy more.




From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

If you don't have a use for it right now, wait - you will.




You could do a PIF (Pay it Forward) to someone who has never used Clairefontaine (ahem, this would include me)




If it is perforated, use it to write letters on

You eat the paper. After all it's healthier than the Mead.

Grab a pen and open to a black page. And let your mind run free.
