I've been using this book as a diary all year and as such it's a nicely presented, sexy-looking item. It's made from wonderful thick, bright white, quality paper. Such paper (it's almost thick enough to be card) doesn't come cheap, and this is reflected in the high price. And without wishing to sound all pervy, it smells GREAT!
What more can I say? It's expensive for what it is, but it's proven to be durable, and every time I get it out (ooh-er, missus!) someone will comment upon its attractive design.
I'm a rampant bibliophile, and would love this to have been packed with esoteric book and author-related information, yet the content is fairly sparse and surprisingly disappointing.
Still, it's lovely to look at and I'll probably buy the same thing for next year - providing I can pick it up for half price.
