I have been buying the Islands Page A Day calendar for quite a few years. The pictures are great and I have saved every year since the first time I bought them.

Starting with the 2012, the paper is now thinner and more flimsy than previous years. The pictures are still very good. But the thinner paper bends much easier when pulling pages out and reinserting in the back. Also, if you want to keep select days (pictures) out they don't hang flat on the wall for long. Not a huge deal. But it's disappointing to see something that was a very good product becoming cheap and flimsy.

I think this is the 4th year I have had this desk calendar. I got it as a gift the first time, and loved it so much that I ordered it again subsequent years. Each day has a beautiful photograph of a lovely beach/island somewhere on this big planet. It has a nice holder and is easy to use... it's a daily ritual to get to see my new beach each day. I recommend it to all fellow ocean/beach/island lovers!

I, like a lot of other dissatisfied reviewers, have been getting these page-a-day calendars from the same company year after year. Specifically, I was impressed with the thick paper and the sharp, bright images. This year, it seems as though the company has decided to cheapen their product by using thinner paper. While it wouldn't be so bad if there were 313 pages (365 days, but weekends are on the same page), but there are 157 pages, so when day 1 is done, you take it, and move it to the back. This used to be easy to do one-handed because of the thickness of the paper. Now I'm afraid I'll bend the paper! Also, the printing is not as crisp. I know these might sound like silly complaints, but when you constantly give a company money for a higher-quality product, then they stop doing what you pay for, it's like a slap in the face. Sadly, unless something changes, this will be my last calendar with this company.

I started getting this calendar several years ago. At that time, it was a tropical island caldendar. A fantastic mental vacation every day. A couple of years ago, they started adding more and more other types of islands. An island in a lake. Barren, rocky islands. They were obviously trying to go for variety. However us island lovers can never get enough palm trees, blue water and white sand. Please don't continue to water down this calendar with pictures of "islands" in Germany and the like. Bring on the Caribbean, Polynesia, and the Seychelles!

Knowing that I hated winter, I moved to Arizona twenty years ago, but my mom is still stuck in Illinois. I buy her this calendar every year. While she washes the morning dishes, she fantasizes about sunnier, warmer climes. Who can't use a little more sunshine!?

This calendar is extremely colorful and shows you all the different lovely islands you should dream about and someday see. I have started to go to the islands and have make it to 7 islands so far in different parts of the world and the calendar brings back wonderful memories everyday! The calendar arrived quickly and is clearly displays the dates.

I have really been enjoying this calendar so far this year. It has beautiful, clear pictures. I was worried about the quality of the paper because of some of the other reviews, but I am very happy with it. The pages are a good thickness for a daily calendar. Every day I look forward to seeing what island I will be visiting. Based on the quality of the pictures and paper, I will be looking for this same calendar for 2013!
