With all the scribbling down of bands to check out, new beers to try, and High School classmates to find on Facebook, it’s pretty easy for the average guy to go through a ton of notebooks in a year. It doesn’t make it easier when the current notebook you’re on gets destroyed outside a bar on a rainy night. If we’re going to put such valuable information into these little pads we might as well invest in ones that aren’t going to get easily wrecked like an Ivan Drago opponent. This lq Handcrafted Notebook has a cover made of Kraft board along with an eyelet rivet binding and cotton mesh to keep it sturdy and your notes safe from the elements. It also comes with a Mitsubishi uni-ball pen which can be stored in the top of the notebook because, as we have found many times, a notebook is fairly useless without one.
