    I got the Travelers Notebook Cover from ShopJot just a bit before you–I had seen Assizah’s review. I like the multiple elastic bands; much easier to fit several notebooks than the traditional cover. I also appreciate that because it is a bit wider, the multiple notebooks don’t push one another beyond the cover edge. It all makes a nice, completely covered package, including a pen if I hook one on the outside elastic. Now that Cori has gotten some cool new materials, I am fighting the urge to buy another one or two–would sort of defeat the purpose of buying this one at the lower cost than Midori😊.

    Hi Matt, 50 minutes and this edition of Currently Inked just flew by! Packed with really useful info. I especially liked your discussion on the merits of ultrasonic cleaners as I’m considering getting one. I now realise (thanks to you) that they are not a cure-all but have a very specific use and should be used wisely.
