My Moleskine notebook, which I've only been using for a few months, is starting to break. The bottom of the spine is broken off on one side, and it will probably continue.

I can't really say whether it's bad manufacturing, or if it's because I stuff it in my pockets too roughly. But I mean, if I don't keep my notebook in my pocket, where should I keep it? I don't always have a backpack with me.

I'm thinking next time I'll use those set-of-3 cahiers instead of one single hardcover notebook; it would probably last better for the "rough" treatment I put it through.

On the other hand, has anyone tried the new paperback notebooks? Are they any good?
