    I'm looking for a small to medium sketchbook with medium to almost cardstock like paper in it. The sketchbook also has to be flexible (but only to a certain extent) too.

    I want to make a flip book and I don't want to use flimsy thin paper.

    Would a moleskin be good? I've never felt the paper in one.

    I use a moleskine as my research notebook, but have a sketchbook at home too. Moleskine sketchbooks come in various sizes, and they do have fairly thick paper. You may find one with a flexible cover as well. Whether they call it "card-stock" or not, I'm not sure, but it is definitely drawing-worthy. My one issue with it is that the paper, while thick, is extremely smooth. For sketching, I'd have liked it just a little rough.

    BTW, since they look the same, make sure that you are getting a sketchbook, not a notebook, since the paper in the notebook is much thinner. I've seen a few other companies make sketchbooks too, at more or less the same price.
