Moleskine 2014 Star Wars notebooks!

I'm so excited about these!

I got the large Yoda notebook (blank pages) and the pocket size Han Solo notebook (lined pages).

Inside the front covers are character quotes and planet views:
 

Inside the back is another planet view, and in the pocket is an original movie poster!
 
More on these notebooks in a minute, first where did I get them? I ordered them directly from the Moleskine website. To get there I clicked through the ad in the sidebar on Philofaxy.com, which gave me a code for free shipping! Bonus!

Also Moleskine threw in a free Cahier pocket week per page planner. As far as I know these are not available for separate purchase this year, so it was a nice surprise.
 
 (Sorry for the rumpled overpage!)
 The week per page and pocket size make this very handy to go everywhere.
 

Now more about the notebooks! You might notice the 2014 Star Wars notebooks have the same covers as the 2013 Star Wars planners, which I reviewed here. I didn't buy the Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker notebooks, but those have the same covers as their 2013 planners too.

After much hemming and hawing over which notebook to use first in 2014, it became a non-issue when this notebook became available! I liked the 2013 Yoda weekly planner so much, but didn't use it because of course I used my Plannerisms planner this year. So when I saw there was a notebook, I grabbed it!
You can see details on how I will use this notebook as my daily record, lists and notes and my 3-part indexing system in it here.

  1. I've got all the new Star Wars notebooks in my Amazon wishlist! :-) I was a little confused when I saw your photo, because I am currently using the week + notes pocket format with "May the Force Be With You" on the cover -- but the words are embossed, not printed in white (like your large Darth Vader daily planner). I sort of prefer the subtle embossing over the white letters... but they are Star Wars -- I'm getting them, regardless!

    1. P.S. I also meant to say that I'm eagerly awaiting your report of using the Bullet system. For a number of reasons, I don't think it would work for me, but I'm still interested in it and am eager to see how you and others modify it to suit your needs.

    2. Hi Tina, yes as you pointed out the Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader ones look different because their quotes on the cover are embossed in glossy black, which looks cool.

      I used something like a Bullet Journal for about a month and it was great to have one book to record my days, lists and notes, but toward the end of that month it started to get hard to find things in my book. I realized I had about 5 categories of content, and have set up my Filofax with those categories as tabbed sections so I'm wondering if that would work better for me. I still haven't decided if I'll use this large Moleskine or my Filofax. More on that in my Free For All Friday tomorrow!

  2. I love the Star Wars Moleskine notebooks - I only have one which I use for my blog drafts (when I'm not being too lazy to make some brief notes before typing and forgetting half of what I want to include). I think I will need to get some more for 2014 :-)
