Right off the bat, you can tell that this is a well-made journal. It's very sturdy with crisp pages, a nice elastic band, and a handy bookmark that I've tugged on a couple of times (unintentionally) and it has stayed. The pages have very little bleed-through with ink despite the fact that they are so thin. I'm also a fan of the yellowed look. The warmness of that color under lamplight makes writing in this journal relaxing. I have literally traveled around the world with this journal in my bag and despite all the jostling and cramming, it has maintained its shape perfectly.
There is no doubt that Moleskine makes high-quality journals, but I won't give it five stars because I still think it is overpriced compared to comparable journals on the market if you are willing to do a little digging. Plus, the first page drives me a little crazy because about a quarter inch of it is stuck to the second page making it a pain to write on those first couple of pages since they do not fold down properly. I realize this is nitpicking a little bit, but I feel like this is something that could be easily avoided in manufacturing.
If you have a couple of extra dollars to spend on a journal, get this and don't think twice. If you want to be more frugal, shop around a bit, but you can't go wrong with this notebook.
I gave this item four stars rather than five because they are a little pricey. For me, though, it is worth it. For anyone who records their thoughts regularly, I would encourage you to honor those thoughts--your personal history--in these classy little volumes.
I bought one of these to document my photography notes while visiting the Philippines on vacation. I noted IMG_ numbers in my camera and matched them to the names of the people I had photographed.
The paper is really good quality, and the cover is nice and stiff to provide a flat writing surface. I really love the inside pocket, bookmark ribbon, and elastic pageholder features.
