About a month ago I was contacted by Chronicle Books about hosting a give away on my blog of products from the new Moleskine line of products. Unable to say NO to anything free, I accepted. I expected a small amount of products, one or 2 sets of books. Instead I received, via Fedex, a large box. In it were several colors and sets of the 5×8 Volants, a set of the pocket sized volants, a desk calendar and the hottest thing in there, several Color A Month Planners.

They said I'm under no obligation to review them, but I am.
Color-A-Month (referred to from here on out as CAM) I'm a fan of the
volant so a boxed set of Volant notebooks, one for each month is
awesome to me. Lots of creamy writing paper, perfect for planning out
all the stuff going on in one's life, one month at a time. The box is
more of a fixed back and a hinged top with an elastic. It looks like a
super thick Moleskine from the back, turn it around and you see the
spines of all 12 books. I like it and I can't wait to use them. Thumbs
Desk Calender. It's pretty cool. It's all black with an elastic,
with pull off days. Lots of room for writing in appointments and other
stuff. Same creamy moleskine paper as all the other notebooks, but in
single sheet form. There is a pocket on the front "cover" for storing the old pages. I like it.
Large Sized volants. I didn't open a package of these but I love volants so I can't imagine I WOULDN'T like these.
these come in all sorts of fun colors now. Does anyone remember when
they only came in black and then they discontinued them? Yeah me too.
I'm glad they are back.
I'll get some more in depth reviewing and pics up here later, but for now, onto the good stuff.
Heads up for international folks- I want you to enter too, but I can only afford shipping stateside. If your interested in playing to and are willing to pay for shipping, possibly $12- $20 USD, depending on your location, for about $60 in goods depending on the prize, please play along.
Also I'm going to keep my replies to one mass reply each day so I'm not adding a lot of additional comments.
