Person of the Book

When the going gets tough, the tough get a day planner. An old-fashioned model, ink on paper, 5x8. Each week gets a complete spread, so there are 10 lines for each day's appointments rather than just a tiny square.

I used to swear by these books but over time had stopped using them. I made do with the tiny, purse-sized calendars and scribbled notes to myself each day of what I needed to accomplish. I liked being less scheduled, time a vast river rather than a tightly parceled stream.

But my new duties require lots of meetings, and meetings must be jotted down lest they be forgotten. So once again I am a person of the book. The appointment book, that is.
