Essential Books



We’ve recently received a sample in the office for a notebook called “My Essential” which is made by Clairefontaine (more on that next week) which got me thinking about what is essential and what would you write in an essential book. It makes it seem too important to write down grocery lists or random doodles. But the more I thought about it the more I felt that essential is going to be different to every person.

Sports for example is a big part of a lot of people’s lives and then there’s the other side that could not care less about it. However sports is a big deal for me and I would deem it essential which is why I have a notebook dedicated to sporting events I’ve been to, bucket list of stadiums I want to see and other musings on the topic.

Do you have dedicated notebooks for specific topics? What “essential” thing do you keep a notebook for?

  1. The longest on-going notebook(s) is one I keep for learning how to learn chess (discovery so far: its not like school). Still experimenting but also a daily journal and a pocket notebook to catch all the little things you want to remember through out the day. A handwriting practice book, and a collections journal for keeping track of “collections” or lists (reading list, birthdays, inks for my fountain pen, etc)

  2. i have ones for my fosterkittens, knitting, sewing, weaving, spinning, gardening, and woodworking (each have their own book), books i’ve read, books i want to read, and more. i probably need a book of all my books at this point. ;)

  3. I am a what some people might all a journaler, I call it memory reminding. I have several books I am writing in at one time. I one that I write notes in everyday sort of a diary but far less formal. I have another moments in sports and human achievements and another I write about moments in time good and bad though I will say lately I have been making more sad and or tragic entries than happy one’s
