Moleskine Love

The other day I spoke about how much I love my Moleskine planner:

But this isn't my first Moleskine, and it definitely won't be my last. :)
Until a few years ago, I didn't know anything about these lovely and stylish notebooks. I actually stumbled upon them while googling journals and notebooks. The name Moleskine kept popping up, so I eventually started looking them up. And I really liked what I found.
I'm a sucker for any sort of stationery, but LOVE collecting notebooks. I actually have more notebooks than I need, but that won't stop me from buying more.
I usually put them in groups: 
* Notebooks that are TOO pretty to use.
* Notebooks that I want to find a use for.
* Notebooks for brainstorming.
* Notebooks to take quick notes while browsing online.
* Notebooks for journaling.
* Notebooks that can have their pages ripped out...
I think you get the gist of it. ;)
Anyway, back to the Moleskine. I've always loved grid (graph/squared) books, but for some reason they're very hard to find in Australia. Unless you want an ugly exercise book. I've had a hard time finding these kind of notebooks here. SO, when I found out they were an option in Moleskines, I was so excited I bought one--in classic black. When it came in, I fell in love with not just the way it looks but also the inside.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
This is what my collection looks like now:

Aren't they awesome?
My favourite size is large, but I also think that the pocket-sized ones are super cute! And I like the way it feels to write in them. I can't wait to get more! LOL.
I mostly buy mine from The Book Depository because they've got the cheapest prices and free postage, but I did buy some from Go For Cheaper as well. They were pretty good, but if you're International you have to spend $35 to qualify for free postage. I've seen some in a few stores here in Sydney but the prices are RIDICULOUS! I don't have a problem with feeding my Moleskine obsession from online stores.
What about you, do you like Moleskine notebooks? Or do you collect some other kind?
Do tell, because I'm always looking out for new ones. ;)
