We love composition notebooks.

This blog is dedicated to compies. Composition notebooks. Those affordably priced books with the distinctive marbled cardboard covers, flimsy non-archival paper, and intrusive blue lines.

We've all used them at one time or another, but for some reason moved on to other, more expensive, fancypants notebooks. Bah! A notebook is a sidekick, not a butler.

We say a $10 notebook is too elite for the frequent usage, regular abuse and general work that a good compy provides. A notebook's value comes from us, not the specs or pricetag.

We see a compy as a blank canvas, ready for us to hack and modify for our own daily adventures. A notebook wants to be customized, not revered.

We want to see each other's books, to share knowledge, creativity, and a general can-do spirit. Compies are the people's notebook.

We love composition notebooks.
