Circa Smooth Sliver WPockets
Quality in a Smaller Size
This cover set makes a nice alternative to the full size cover set I also use. The Junior size is a great form factor for briefbags and grab-and-go situations. The Smooth Sliver cover design profile, material, and quality are the best I've found for my implementation of the disc-based planner system.

Stylish, but one flaw I can't overlook
This is an attractive and functional notebook. I like the simplicity of the cover, and that it's lighter than many of the other Circa notebooks. No, there's no pen loop, but I added the stick-on one Levenger sells, and that's worked pretty well. The problem is the smell. I ordered my notebook in October 2014 and eight months later, there's still an unpleasant chemical odor coming from it. I've been leaving it out on my desk to air out, and the odor is a lot less than when it was brand new, but if I put it away in a drawer or other enclosed area, the smell gets stronger. This isn't a problem I've had with other LevTex notebooks, and I see no one else has mentioned it in their review, so this could very well be a problem with just this one notebook. But I'd advise anyone buying this, that if you can detect a smell, it's not likely to go away soon.

I purchased the Circa smooth notebook in black for work purposes. I am take a lot of notes during meetings, but it often takes me a lot of time to flip through the padfolio to find notes from a previous related meeting. The Circa system allows me to move pages and organize my notes with ease. The paper quality is incredible, and I feel way more organized during the work day. I love the pockets on the inside cover of the notebook, as well.

Add pockets without bulk
I wanted a secure pocket and a neat looking cover without adding the bulk of most of the other cases. This fits my needs, and I'm very pleased with it.

Royal Blue Circa Smooth Sliver
I have to admit I was afraid the LevTex leather alternative was going to feel cheap. I asked one of my FB groups if any of them liked it. I got several responses and decided to take the plunge. I am glad I did. The cover really feels like leather and is much thinner than the leather without being too thin. KWIM?! I've been using it as my daily notebook at work and am thrilled with it. My only gripe is that because it's the sliver it doesn't have a place for my pen. That's a function of the item unfortunately. I'll wait a few months to see if I REALLY need one and then get the accessory they offer for holding your pen.

I have several projects that I'm working on and I used to have separate folders and notepads for each. This notebook has allowd me to organize everything into one system. Now I just grab my labtap and Levenger notebook and I'm all set. I'm much more organized now.

I purchased this notebook to put inside of my Bomber Folio and it works great. The fabric is nice and smooth...almost like leather. My folio came with a legal styled notebook and I prefer a fold over style notebook. So, I filled it with Circa products (notes, projects, and meetings) added some clear zip pockets and it's perfect. I love Levenger products, style, functionality, and quality. Great product!

Smooth Sliver w/Pockets
I am throughly enjoying my smooth sliver w/pockets - it is serving me very well by helping me keep my projects in one place while at the same time separted. I have also received several inquires about it.Very glad that I made the investment.

I already purchased the sliver letter sized notebook and found that to be too big for my note taking needs. Decided to purchase the junior size. I like the thinner aspect the smooth silver and the pockets on the inside. The pockets are right sized to hold my business cards and small notes. The color is not quite what I expected... brown has some red tint to it but matches well with the ox blood disc. Overall a nice purchase. One think to note though is due to the thinner design, it is possible to strip off a bit of the covering if you pull your covers off aggressively.

I was skeptical about the annotation format paper, but went ahead with the purchase because I was so happy with the look/feel/functionality of the cover material. In addition to being completely happy with the notebook itself, I'm finding the annotation format pages to be extremely helpful for note taking, meeting minutes, idea development. Great purchase!
