Another Perfect Notebook

I went to Odyssey in Chennai last week. I like to go to the stationery section in the book store. You never know what you’ll find.

This time I found a handy little notebook. I like notebooks. I know people who will take notes in a meeting on their laptops, some even on their handhelds. I just can’t. So I always carry a notebook around. This one is from a company called Kaapy (couldn’t locate the website). It has about 80 pages of good quality paper. The hard cover has a nice distinctive, monochrome graphic on it. Not too flashy, but not too plain either. The best thing about it is that it is light weight and just the right size to fit into your pocket.

It costs Rs. 36. I know this price can’t last, so I bought 6 of them.

A few years ago I wrote about another notebook from Rubberband. Strangely, that slim, stylish notebook was not carried by Odyssey. Instead they had a fat, ugly looking notebook which seemed to be a special edition notebook in collaboration with some movie. It cost some godawful amount that I can’t recall. Why would Rubberband do this and who are the people who buy this one, escapes me.

I guess notebooks are a little like companies. With success, they bloat and raise their prices.
