Wow – I had no idea that it’s now been over a year since my last review.
A lot of people have written asking me where I disappeared to and why I stopped writing notebook reviews. It’s pretty simple: I stopped writing reviews because I had covered all the notebooks that interested me on the market at the time. While a few obscure black notebooks were coming out of Europe, most were not interesting enough to merit paying the exorbitant overseas shipping costs. Meanwhile, I had received a bunch of sample notebooks that depressed me, and I wasn’t going to put them up on the site just to give them a bad review. So I decided to put the site on hiatus.
I logged in today to clean out some spam, and was amazed to find that my reviews were being used as message boards by notebook fans to communicate about their own experiences with a given notebook, where to purchase it, etc. A year later, and it looks like there are quite a few new contenders to be reviewed.
So tell me: what little black notebook is long overdue for a review on this site?
