Is it spring yet? Not really. But the snow has started to melt, and we appear to be getting closer…
- I don’t know how I missed it, but the Pen Addict’s Jeff Abbott reviewed J. Herbin’s Eclat de Saphir ink back in January (“this is one of my favorite inks and I can’t wait to introduce it to more of my pens”).
- Also back in January, Azizah reviews the Rhodia Dot Pad at Gourmet Pens (“We’re pretty much a match made in Heaven, this notepad and I”). I’m clearly late to the party! But I, too, am a huge fan of the Dot Pad, too, and I’m glad to see it getting some love.

- Here’s a spot of good news for independent bookstores: author James Patterson will help them out with $1 million from his own personal fortune. (Thanks to Pentamento for calling my attention to the piece.)
