Good to put recent memories in, or memoranda, as you see fit. Whenever I go into a book store or a record shop, my brain is wiped clean, like I’ve been given some terrible drug by the KGB that only lets me remember Pink Floyd and Steven King. I can’t recall any music I’ve been wanting to find, or any books or authors I’m interested in. Times like these are when you need a notebook like this. Jamming out to Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake while building a wheel? Jot it down. Reading Tom Horton’s An Island Out of Time? Right down Horton. It’s easy.
Writing in a memo pad is of course best accomplished with a fountain pen.
