Word Notebooks do something with the concept of the pocket notebook that is a little different than the rest. These notebooks are lined with a dot/circle along the left margin specifically to aid the list-maker. Color in the small dot for a bullet point or use the larger circle to check off all those to-do lists.
The Word Notebooks are the same size as a Field Notes at 5.5″ tall x 3.5″ wide but just a tiny bit thicker which I believe is due to a slightly weightier paper stock (60# white text vs Field Notes 50# text). The paper is a bright white with pale, warm gray lines and circles in the margin which are unobtrusive.
In the writing tests, the paper performed acceptably. There was a little bit of show-through with the fountain pen inks from the Platinum Preppy, Pilot Petit and TWSBI Mini but the finer lined pens, the gel-based and rollerballs all did fine. Since the lines on the paper are light, using lighter colored inks is a pleasant experience and will limit the likelihood of show-through. The Pilot Hi-Tec C Coletos worked great and would pair well with this notebook for jotting grocery lists.
Three-packs are available for $9.99

I dig the camo book.
I like the orange one. Need to give these a try in my collection.

I would love to win the orange one, but the camo one is good looking, too. For someone who misplaces things, orange is definitely a better choice than camouflaged 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!
Nice notebook. Red please. Thanks.
Orange please…I would lose the camo!
Looks like a nice helpful system with the bullets / circles. After the long winter, I would choose the orange 🙂
I’d like the orange one if I win.

I’m really liking the orange book. But then, I always go with orange when given the choice.
Orange is a lovely color, isn’t it?
I love the Orange one. It is a nice bright pop of color.
I’ve never seen these before but they look very nice. Any color is fine by me!
I like the orange but the camo is great, too!

Love the camo!
These look really nice. I think I would prefer the orange.
