Like many others have said, it is the perfect size. However, the pages are thinner than regular printer paper. This should not even be advertised as a sketch book. The paper is not even remotely art quality. I'm not one to write reviews, and I wont be returning it because I should have taken the time to more carefully read through the reviews, but I want to stop others from making the same mistake I did. I've ordered smaller moleskine sketchbooks before and didn't have the same issue with paper quality.
I've been using this particular model of Moleskine notebook for my daily note-taking and doodling for the past five years, and I've filled three of them so far. I like them so much that I ordered another half dozen from Amazon just to be sure I have some in reserve.
Surprisingly durable. A few years ago, I was in Fairbanks, Alaska and placed one of these notebooks on the roof of my car was I was fumbling with the door. I then forgot about it and drove off. A little while later, I went to look for the notebook but could not find it. Fortunately, I always write my phone number on the inside front cover, and a lady called me to tell me she'd found my beloved Moleskine. When I picked it up from her, the numerous tire tracks across various inside pages testified to the fact it had been run over numerous times. And yet, all of the pages stayed attached and unripped. Very satisfying.
The cover is durable, doesn't get scratched easily, and Ive never had on tear on me. I love that the paper is tan rather than white, I don't tend to get eyestrain even after extended periods of drawing or writing. My only concern is that I would have the paper be slightly heavier, it can bleed through slightly on occasion. The extra large size is perfect for my needs, just small enough to not be unwieldy, though I would prefer that one was made this size, with twice as many pages.
I tend not to use the back pouch often, more because I forget Ive put things there than for any lack of functionality. But I love the bookmark (very useful for marking pages with important reminders) and elastic closure.
As my husband likes to tell me, $13 IS pricey for a notebook, but this notebook is pretty much my life, and they tend to last me a good 4-6 months before I run out pages, so I feel that I'm getting sufficient value for the money.
I do not recommend this to people who only occasionally jot things down, but I think anyone who finds themselves in daily need of a note or sketchbook will be well pleased,
