[Amazon recently combined pages for two products: the MJ3 and MJ5. This review is for the smaller MJ3]

The sizes given in Amazon's Product Details and Product Description are contradictory. The correct size for the cover is 3.5" x 5.5" and the paper is a slightly smaller. Thickness is about 1/2".

192 pages means 96 sheets. Paper is cream-colored, smooth uncoated, strong but thin with a lot of show through. Lines are dark grey. Line-spacing is a bit tight--under 7/32", giving 20 lines to write in plus top and bottom margins of approximately 1/2" each.

Well made. Binding uses sewn signatures. Does not lie flat.

Covers are stiff but bendable cardboard covered with "genuine bonded leather." Translation: "real fake leather." The label says, "80% genuine cowhide leather fibers and 20% non-leather materials." I guess that's fake leather composed of bits and pieces of real leather and other stuff. "Genuine bonded leather" is reminiscent of the furniture retailers' expression, "solid engineered wood." I.e., sawdust and glue. Anyway, it looks okay and smells like leather.

Made in China.

These are a good deal at $6 to $7, but in the past Amazon's price has spiked to $12. They are way overpriced at that point.

I wanted a leather back journal but Amazon did not describe the other ones very well enough for me to purchase. This journal was described well by both Amazon and the other reviewers. It suits my needs perfectly and I couldn't ask for anything better. Here are some pros and cons for this item:
Pros:
The leather is as tough as a hardcover. (It is made of 80% cowhide and 20% nonleathers, whatever that means)
There is a pocket in the inside back to hold pages and other items.
Thin ribbon bookmark to save your pages.
Elastic band to keep your journal shut.
Cons:
The page lines are narrow ruled and unperforated. It is not a school notebook after all.
The pages bleed through if you use a marker or thick pen.
The pages are not a bright white, but more of a cream or off white.
The journal is small. If you want to know the exact size. Get a sheet of computer paper, turn it sideways, and fold it half. That's the size of this journal.

My husband is the one who actually uses this journal. I have ordered a 2nd one because he purchased the first one elsewhere 2 years ago and is now requesting a new one just like it. He actually managed to fit 2 years' worth of diary into it and the cover looks nearly new yet. It has lined pages that are cream-colored, nice to write on, and definitely worth having as a family heirloom. It has a pocket in the back cover, perfect for storing any mementos that you would like to keep, such as tickets to special events, etc. An elastic band wraps around from the front cover to keep the journal closed and it has held up nicely these past 2 years. The journal is slim, about 1/2 inch thick, so it is easy to toss in to a suitcase or overnight bag.

This journal is the perfect size for a purse or pocket. It has a little envelope on the back cover to hold whatever and a nice ribbon to mark your place. It has an elastic band to keep it shut, and all-in-all is a nice little journal. I think it's a bargain.

I have taken these journals with me to China, India, Korea, Singapore, Europe as well as all over the US. Very well bound together and the leather cover keeps in like new condition. I really like the pocket in the back and the elastic strap that holds it together. I keep receipts in the back pocket while I travel during the day and then create an expense report each night. The elastic band holds any papers inside that I may collect at vendors througout the day. The paper quality is very good. Highly recommend!

I researched many journals before finally choosing these. I wanted something that would stand up to kids writing and handling. These turned out to be perfect. The cover is very sturdy and the pages are thick and lined. The elastic band keeps it closed. I can see these books holding up very well.

For the price and availability and a number of stores- great. Size is good for a something to take along.

Paper is cream colored and I had high hopes. However, as most paper in the US- cheap. I write with fountain pens- and even with the finest nibs and different inks everything bleeds through like a ruptured artery.
Even regular pens that most people use- forget it. You can write on one side- writing on the backside of the paper is a punishment, the paper just doesn't hold up at all.

Pencils for this paper in this notebook. Might work for those who use pencils, crayon, sketching etc- for writers not very suitable.
