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.
