Circa Sliver Foldover Notebook
My favorite Circa from a 5 yr user
I am a 5 year fan and user of Circa notebooks and this is my new favorite! While I love my leather and bookcloth options, this is so much lighter and more durable. I hate nicking my leather notebook and my bookcloth has suffered the occasional stain. This one is holding up well to my wear and tear and is so light to carry around! Love, love, love it.

I like the material of this cover, the color (purple), the texture, it's weight....everything except that it collects dust and dirt like crazy.
I do think the personalization should be avail in a contrasting color.
For use at customer sites, where I want something to look really good, I like this. Everyday use, it's not durable enough.

I have been using Circa notebook for about 15 years. Normally, I use the leather notebooks or the translucent covers. I wanted a thinner notebook and tried the Lenticular cover which I didn't care for and now this one. I like that this cover is more sleek than the leather covers but looks more professional than the translucent covers. Additionally, hopefully, this notebook will not curl which is a problem that I have sometimes had with the translucent covers.
I have the Carezza eggplant notebook which I "upgraded" with the purple aluminum discs. I had intended to do the same with this notebook; sadly, those discs have been discontinued.
I like the fact that there is a smooth writing surface with this notebook since it is missing the pockets present in the leather notebook (which I never use anyway). I paid to have the notebook personalized which doesn't use the most attractive font I've ever seen but I like it anyway.
I also wish Levenger had the option to buy the cover separately. I never use the window-paned paper that comes with this notebook and prefer the fully lined option. Had I been able to purchase the cover only hopefully, I'd have saved a few pennies and avoided a pad of paper that I'll not use.
I sure do wish II could get my hands on some of those purple aluminum discs again...

Happy I downsized
I've used Circa letter sized notebooks and paper for years, but the size and weight of that format was beginning to bother me. I got the junior Sliver Foldover Notebook in the hopes that I'd continue to enjoy everything I like about Circa without the bulk.
It was a good call. I REALLY like the size of this notebook. The "premium leather alternative" covers are actually nothing at all like leather. They are a thick rubbery material with good grippable texture. I'm really happy with the covers, but don't think you're getting anything like leather.
What's not to like? Same great Circa system, only lighter and smaller. And the junior refills are all cheaper...

I saw a fellow employee with the letter size and loved the look. I have the junior leather and wanted one that was less bulky but more than the plastic. I was skeptical due to some reviews. I found it flexible and light yet still durable enough to write on if not at a desk. Love the color and texture.

Best Products ever!
I love this book as well as many others from Levenger. My favorite thing is that the pages are inter-changeable. I can now have project books and then a book with just my to do's in it. I wear many hats where I work, so this is wonderful for me. It really helps me keep my workload straight.

Absolutely love this notebook!
I was a little concerned after reading a few of the reviews but I liked the description of the product and its appearance. I purchased two of them, one in red and one in purple. I am so absolutely pleased with this product! I have traveled with it, I use it in meetings, it is very professional looking and it never fails whenever I take it out of my briefcase, people comment and compliment it. Really functional, easy to carry in briefcase, not weighty, just an excellent solution for me.

Best purchase so far
I plan on getting a leather fold over shortly so as for right now this is the best and most versatile notebook ever. I am so glad that I had asked my coworker about their notebook they had when I saw them using it. Being able to move the pages around as u need to makes everything so much simpler to find and the quality of the notebook and paper is also top notch. I would definitely recommend levenger notebooks to everyone. I also purchased the planner when I got the circa silver notebook and it is the best planner I have ever used as well. Again being able to move around pages to specific dates and times very useful as well as being able to tear the notched corners makes moving around in the calendar so much easier as well

LOVE the Circa Sliver!
I purchased the Circa Sliver Foldover Notebook in purple for a long-term project, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! The subtly textured cover looks fantastic and feels fabulous. I added monogramming and paired it with purple discs, and it really is a spectacular product. Its slim profile is perfect for notetaking in meetings, and the Annotation Tabs separate the sections to keep everything organized. I also added two pen loops to color code my action items. If you're looking for a beautiful lightweight notetaking system, then look no further. The Circa Sliver is it!

Floppy rubbery circa fold-over notebook
Very disappointing. It's made of a floppy, rubbery material that doesn't lie flat in my lap when I try to write in it. You can only use it on a table or other hard, flat surface. I bought this for travel when I might need to write in my lap (like on a plane or in an airport). The material smells like a synthetic rubber and has an unappealing, almost sticky hand. Too bad I had it monogrammed. I'd return it in an instant and get a regular leather fold-over. Not up to Levenger's standards. Ugh. Buyer beware.
