I purchased the notebook for around £9 but prices vary online and it is currently being sold for £12 on Amazon. Product description:
The Rhodia Large Plain Webnotebook, also known as the 'Webbie", is a classic alternative to the Moleskine notebook. Rhodia notebooks are manufactured in France and have already built up a cult following of their own, especially with those who like to use fountain pens. The Webbie contains 192 pages of 90g ivory Clairefontaine paper, which means that they are ideal for all pen types and a delight to write in. Each notebook also features an expanding pocket, a ribbon marker and elastic closure to keep its contents secure.The magical Clairefontaine paper seriously is the SMOOTHEST paper I have ever written on and the quality is just so clearly luxe. I know some of my family members are always shocked by the amount of money I'm willing to spend on notebooks (they prefer your bog standard WH Smith paper) but you really do get what you pay for when it comes to Rhodia.
With regards to a Moleskine notebook I was rather disappointed with my first purchase.
What I DO like about Moleskine notebooks is their size and shape. I love the fact that the corners of their pages are rounded. I also love the fact that you can get Moleskine's in different colours, sizes, limited edition designs. I use the cassette tape player notebook for inspirational quotes and images, particularly when I'm in a nostalgic mood (because nothing says the '90s to me more than a cassette tape!)

Overall I prefer the Rhodia Webnotebook but the Moleskine comes a close second.
