Moleskine is getting to the point that it’s the ubiquitous notebook. The Scotch tape or Kleenex of the written word world. We’re fine with that, but we need constant visible reminders about the important things happening today because we can’t be bothered to take said ubiquitous notebook out of our pocket umpteen times a day. The point is this – even with event reminders on your smart phone of choice, you’ve forgotten an important date by lunch time because you dismissed it. It’s not your fault, but that won’t stop the significant other from holding it against you. The solution is to go low tech. The 2011 Moleskine Desk Calendar is just a giant Moleskine notebook with detachable pages labeled with the day and date. It’s got the same standard hard cover, but this one folds open to keep it upright. And there’s no dismiss button.
