I am a big fan of the Moleskine series note books. They are really good quality and, with plenty of pages in them, they last a long time.

It's worth pointing out there are a couple of different sizes of Moleskine book, so if you're buying on the internet, best be sure just which one you're buying.

The 'pocket' ones are just that; pocket size - 9 x 14 cm (or 3.5 x 5.5" in old money) whereas the 'normal' ones (sometimes called 'large') are the ones I prefer - 13 x 21 cm (or 5.25 x 8.25")
There are lots of other styles and sizes, including 'special editions', but these are by far the most common sizes.

They all come with the elastic closer, which is a great feature, as it keeps it closed in transit, even with other things stuffed in between the pages. The hard cover keeps it all tidy and stops the pages from curling up with use. And the paper quality is high too, so you don't get your ink bleeding on the page or visible through on the other side.

The sketchbook one has high quality sketchpaper in it; great for notetaking and, well sketching. I particularly like the squared paper one too, as it allows me to layout my notes the way I like them and add 'to do' checkboxes. The squares also give you a guide for sketching diagrams and the like. You can also get lined and plain paper Moleskine too.

Very practical - this is one brand I haven't come across. I thought your mention of the different options available was a great idea too.

I love empty notebooks of any sort - full of all sorts of possibilities!
