I bought this as a gift for my other half, she does a lot of writing and prefers to have it in a nice little book than scraps of paper and refill pads. She actually already has this exact same book, has done for a few years but recently filled all the pages. She couldn't find one as high quality as this anywhere, at least not at a reasonable price and couldn't for the life of her remember where she bought this one. I stumbled across it on here, recognized it and bought it instantly. The book itself is a beautiful item, looks classy, not too in your face and definitely wouldn't look out of place on a desk or bookshelf. I wrote a note on the first page and was extremely happy with the quality of paper. You can write on a page and it leaves no trace on the back of the same page meaning you could easily use every page, back and front. All in all a great product at a great price. Perfect for anyone wanting a nice item to write that first novel, keep a journal or just keep track of those random day to day thoughts. The book has a magnetic wrap around which keeps the book closed and protects the edge of the pages from getting tattered and the little fold out pouch in the back is a nice little addition. All in all, very pleased with this purchase. You will be too.
