Comments on 2019-12-05 Commonplace Books

Are you an Apple product user Alex? (I think maybe not?) If you are then you may like the Apple Pencil and iPad with GoodNotes or Notability. I mention them because, after years of being a commonplace book user and firmly in the ’pen and paper are irreplaceable’ camp, I have recently converted and have found it a very easy and useful transition. Being able to add handwritten notes and doodles to images, PDFs etc. has expanded my imagination and productivity in ways I couldn’t have imagined. And having a bullet journal/campaign notebook/art journal/diary/sketchpad/garden notebook - my ’one book to rule them all’ is a beautiful thing.

Do you have some screenshots? I do have a big iPad and an Apple pencil but I just use them for drawing stuff.
