I would like to know if any of you use a notepad/notepad cover that is similar to the kind I'm looking for:

At the moment I am using simple wire-bound reporters’ notepads, but I am looking for something better. What I need specifically is a cover that would have a transparent sleeve or compartment (that would be on the left side of the pad when open) where I could store small cards with specific terminology (in case I have a blank).

I hope this is clear :)

I've never seen a note-pad quite like the one your describe but you can easily achieve the desired effect by folding over the last page of the pad so it protrudes to one side as in this picture. You can write whatever you like on it (in the picture it's to remind the interpreter not to say "errrm" too often, but you can put vocab, proper names or acronyms specific to your meeting there of course) alt text

What an excellent idea. I would never have thought of it in a million years. Thanks!

Andy, where have you found those unruled, top-bound notepads? It seems impossible to find them. See
