101 Things: 78. Copy/update address book

I have been keeping an address book for as long as I can remember. I think that this possibly stems from my obsession with lists. I know that most people these days keep this information on their phones or computers (I have them stored there as well) but for some reason I need to have it on paper. In some instances, it is actually easier to flip through the address book than scrolling through your phone. Writing invitations or Christmas cards, for example. I’ve had the same address book for quite some years now and it has probably needed to retire for some time. However, finding a replacement was a process. I wanted something that had a hard cover and plenty of room for additional addresses in the future. I also wanted something that would look good laying out on the desk or counter, as it inevitably ends up there. After a bit of a search, I found exactly what I was looking for . . . the Moleskine address book! I already use them for notebooks for my art and knitting projects as well as carrying small one in my purse. I got this one in red to differentiate it from the many others floating about the house. I just finished transferring all the addresses last week, an arduous task, and I know that I won’t have to do it again for many more years now that I have this guy!
