    Hello,

    I started using Moleskine journals for my research but decided it's too restrictive. I like sections covering what I've read, notes on particular parts of books and other areas like future reading.

    I don't like using journals because they are too restrictive. I have to guess how many pages I'd need to cover a particular book or section. It occurred to me - a Filofax gives me that flexibility to add and remove sections because I can add pages as and when.

    Are there other products that are similar to Filofax? Also, can you relate to this problem? How did you overcome it?

    Thanks,

    I don't know how soon it is going to be available as it was a kickstarter but this looks awesome:

    It's a notebook that has magnetic pages you can put in and take out so that you can avoid this exact problem. I saw it on YouTube the other day and am desperate for one.


    I make note in a scrappy book and then write them up nicely on A4 paper and put it in a ring binder. Nothing mind blowing or exciting but it works.
