No China Diet: The Notebook and Journal Fetish

So perhaps you witnessed the shame of my discovery through Scott that my beloved Moleskine notebooks are made in China (designed in Italia)? That was a difficult day to work.

Scott immediately suggested the Miquel Ruis notebooks, made in Spain, which are very attractive. And, later, perhaps plagued by guilt, he also found Paperchase products, which are sold at Borders. I'm going to visit these notebooks in person because the notebook issue is a fetish, and I must fondle their pages to gauge the weight.

Pia, the original Moleskine user, has found these Quaderno notebooks, which seem equally lovely and are made of recycled paper (and in Italy). I hope she orders them, because I would love a full report.
