[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 $15. They are way overpriced at that point. The brown and black versions are often priced differently. Currently, the brown version is almost double the price of the black.

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.

I have 3 of these now. Perfect size for me and use them to record notes while reading books. Or writing thoughts on whatever philosophy I might be reading at the time. I do have one I use as an everyday journal where I keep random notes in and private thoughts, and its b/c of those private thoughts I added a lock which worked out nicely. I'll try to add a pic of the one with the lock.

ATTENTION: You should not pay the amazon price for the smaller version IT'S ONLY $6 IN STORES.

I mistakenly ordered the bigger size, and decided to return it because I wanted a journal I could fit into my tiny purses. I went to my local Walmart and picked up the small-sized version for only $5.99. I really like it! I use a regular ball-point pen, so I don't have any problems with ink bleeding through. Fits well in my tiny purses and it's simple, yet adorable.
