Leitz Wow A4 Ruled Notebook - Metallic Pink by Leitz
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is very nice, pink in colour, robust with clear pages and a ruler for those who are OCD with their notebooks. As a stroke of genius there is also a folder sleeve inside the back cover where you can tuck notes or receipts etc.

Cue Reacher joining up with a young female CIA agent (of course) and tracking snipers to London via Paris. Being British, Lee Child is obviously on familiar British territory and the Brits are treated with respect and not as old fashioned and not up to the job, which was a nice change. But we see Reacher drawing out the bad guys for somewhat typical Reacher confrontations and his unique moral stance… Read more
