Knock, Knock. Who's There? A new mousepad!

In the last few days, many book bloggers have been talking about where they write down the books they are interested in reading.  I commented on a few blogs that I jot down book suggestions in a cheap-o, spiral-bound notebook, but after a fun shopping trip today I’ve got a new mouse pad–and it’s multi-functional!

Technically, it’s a website note mouse pad…but I’ve modified it to suit my purposes.  I’ll be able to zip around the blog world and write down books, authors, and blogs that catch my interest!  The mouse pad is produced by Knock Knock and I love it already.  Take a peek!

    Oh, that’s really clever! 😀 And so handy, too– you won’t have to scrounge around for something to write on when you want to remember something!

    For myself, I either write down books I’m interested in a special blue notebook that, um, I’ve currently lost, or I add it to my Amazon wishlist. The Amazon wishlist is easier, as it won’t disappear under all the crap in my room!

    Actually, you know what–I just remembered I’ve got a notebook by Knock Knock! It’s super awesome, a hardbacked composition notebook with all sorts of extra things in it. I use it to store cut-out from magazines so they aren’t flying all over the place and getting under my feet. I don’t think they make it anymore, though, since I got mine from one of those discount surplus stores. 🙁 Makes me sad.

      I love this idea! Too bad I don’t have a mouse. Not being able to have this mouse pad is probably the ONLY drawback to having a laptop instead of a desktop.

        I don’t have a mouse either, but it is a fab idea. I like mine in a notepad I can take out with me, so I can search the charitiy shops for near perfect books I want at a fraction of the price.

          Oh wow, that’s cool. I don’t use a mouse pad either.

            What a cool idea! Thanks for sharing this.

            BTW, I have given you an award. You can pick it up here: http://www.melissas-bookshelf.com/2009/04/lets-be-friends-award.html

              That’s so cool! I do use a pad (left over from the old days)

                Feh. I don’t like it. Seems like you’d have to move the mouse out of the way, find a marker, transfer, erase, blah blah blah. And I was going to ask if you had to carry the mouse pad around with you when you left the house, but you took care of that at 8:07am this morning.

                Why not use one of those computer-desktop-notejottting programs? There are virtual-stickies, simulacro-notebooks, and all sorts of things available. Or even browser/bookmark helpers like Delicious.

                Finally, I think the mousepad’s kind of ugl- uhmm aesthetically challenged.

                  My mousepad at work is a calendar and it is brilliant. Wall calendars are too hard to use often, and giant desk calendars get in the way, this is perfect. If I used a mouse at home I’d totally get one like yours or some other write-on-able one.

                    I have never been to this blog, Nat! While I was reading your touching post, I didn’t recognize the name, but being in Florida at your parents…I thought, that has to be Nat!

                      I constantly travel with a pen and notepad for just this reason.

                      The two books on my “to read” list are “White Plague” by Frank Herbert and “Atlas Shrugged” by whatsherface.

                      It’s cute, though, super cute!

                        I can’t even find a scrap of paper when I need one! Curly, COME RESCUE ME!!

                          Um, I love it. Now, if only it were pink!

                          Of course, I’m really obsessed with having the “right” mousepad… the wrong one can totally screw up your productivity. The one I use now at work is a freebie with just the right amount of traction! 🙂

                              That is a great idea! : )

                                What a great idea! I want one and I want to be the one that came up with the idea!

                                  I’m an Excel geek and for the last couple of years I’ve been entering the books I want to read in a file I created. I even have it organized by general genre. When they are read, they are not deleted, but underlined. I’m a geek and I’m ok with that ;).
