A few weeks ago I posted an offer for people to try a Roadbook as their notebook around town or as a travel journal. About 25 people signed up to try the Roadbook, and promised to send feedback and photos. I will be posting their reviews periodically as I receive them. Here is our first group:
Chris P. will be taking the Roadbook on a motorcycle trip to Texas. “Keeping all my notes in the road book. I use index cards in the map case for directions.”
Stephen P. is a “frequent business traveller and user of notebooks. Has been an interesting experience using your notebook. Initially it was difficult to get used to as I’m a fountain pen user. The paper was too glossy and didn’t let the ink flow freely. Tightly bound pages made it hard to open and use easily. But don’t despair it isn’t all bad. It’s great for pencil and sketching out ideas and mind maps. It is robust and attractive. Just need to get the right users attracted. I will provide a few update pics.”
Penny S.G. is a computer scientist, and also designs her own hand knitting and crochet patterns. She “loves Clairefontaine paper” but wishes “it was offered in dot or grid.” “It’s a dream to write on and made a first draft effortless. It didn’t bat an eye when the next page became a quick sketch of a jacket hanging on a chair at the coffee shop and annotated with ideas on how it could be transformed into a knitted design. It hasn’t complained being shoved around and living on the bottom of my Tom Bihn bag. The cover has surprised me in how good it still looks.”

My sincere thanks to our reviewers for your photos and feedback. I’m looking forward to more comments!
