Rhodia Webnotebook "Webbie" 3.0

The title says it all. I’m grateful to be hosting a Rhodia Webnotebook 3.0 giveaway here at Miscellaneous Ramblings.

You might be thinking, “Wow Sara that’s great but you’re late to the party.” It’s true. I received these journals a few months back. I thought I’d wait for the herd of other reviews and giveaways to thin and then sneak mine into the list. Unfortunately the holidays and life got in the way. But its good! One of my readers will get to start off 2011 with a brand spanking new blank paged Rhodia Webnotebook.

Lets take a peak at what you could win. The “Webbie” comes wrapped nicely with a paper band that boasts its best features. “192 pages, 96 sheets, expanding pocket, 5.5 by 8.25 inches, Clairefontaine brushed vellum 90g paper, Made in France.” The Webbie comes in either Rhodia black or orange. I chose orange because one of my favorite colors. Each has a bookmark and pocket in the back.

Several other reviews of the quality and loveability of this item have been done. Here is a list of reviews that have been done by fellow Rhodia fans. (Please note that version 3.0 of the Rhodia Webnotebook does NOT have the Rhodia logo in the page corners of the lined version. Its the same 90g paper so the reviews still apply!)
