When I received an e-mail asking if I would like to review the ever popular Acad-Pad wall planner, I was all....huh? No clue what you are talking about!!! Some lovely PR type people sent me a copy to review and all I can say is that I love it.....but I'm guessing you are still none the wiser?
So, basically it's a wall planner based on the academic year, which is great for those of us that work in education and students that are just heading back to school/college/university. They also sell filofax pages, a desk pad and a mini acad-pad for all types of Scholars and Lecturers. This is part of their lovely range:
Not only is it bright and funky it's also purple which is one of my favourite colours!!! Each week is set out across a page which has five separate columns for each day of the week, for you to divide up as you chose.
You could use it as an individual but it would be fabulous for families as well!! The page at the top of the week is left blank for you to doodle or write on as you wish.
All the pages have amazingly creative doodles and random, humorous facts or quotes!!! The quote at the bottom of the following page says 'I can never remember if Moby Dick is the man or the whale' - James Thurber:
What I like most about the Acad-pad is the ability to split up the days into lots of sections because we lead such ridiculously busy lives and that there is enough room for my huge writing! Also they have all the English and the American bank holidays so I know when Labour Day etc is. I cannot sing the praises of this product enough and in fact I'm so impressed I'm going to buy an extra copy so that I can have one at home and another at work!!!
You can purchase the range from the website here or from my good friends at John Lewis or at Waterstones as well as most good academic bookstores. The range starts from only £7.50!!
I have Five copies to give away to you my delightful readers. As usual to enter the competition all you have to do is become a Follower and leave me a comment letting me know that you've done this and maybe mentioning how wonderful I am! Also tell me what you would use the Acad-Pad for......organising your life or maybe just doodling!!!!
Closing Date is Friday 27th August. Winners will be selected at random after this date! Good Luck!!!!
