Circa Weekly Vertical Format Agenda Refill LTR
Bit of a let-down
Most of my regret is realizing that this calendar will not work well for my needs (not Levenger's fault), but I figured I could salvage some of it. Unfortunately, I can't even use the birthday/events calendar pages because they start on the back of the last week of the year. I don't assume most people carry the whole year's worth of weekly agendas around at once. I would have liked to move those pages to another section without splitting up the agenda for a time period a year away.
I'm still confused how I just received a notification stating that this item shipped, when it actually arrived two days ago!

Perfect planner for me
I just ordered my second year's worth of letter-sized vertical-format planner pages. I explored the world of agenda formats for months before finally taking the risk on the Circa system.
The format of these agenda pages is exactly what I need. Plenty of space to put all the information I want at my fingertips - and it's a classy system, to boot.
Spendy ($34 for 60 pages of copies!), but clearly, in the end, worth it to me.
Slightly heavier paper would be nice, but it's not a deal-breaker for me.

Hovering around the Target
I love Levenger. I've been one of your most enthusiastic Lev-angelists for a long time. I want to love this planner. Your designers put the 2 page/month spread between the months, which is great. But they aren't cardstock with tabs! What were they thinking? The paper is just as thin as the "new and improved" calendar pages - worse than useless! And why did they print the pages on such paper in the first place? The Circa brand used to be synonymous with substantial paper that can take good ink without feathering. I hate to break it to you, but this product only tarnishes your reputation. You'd get extra points by starting the day before bankers' hours - how 'bout those of us who get going at 4 am? A 24 hour version or a version that allows one to fill in the times to fit one's schedule would be welcome...

I love this planner and have used it for years. However, I am a little disappointed this year with some of the changes that were made and are hopeful that they can be fixed for next year! The paper is thinner this year, and because I use my planner so much, it doesn't feel like it's going to hold up as well as the thicker paper from years past. Certain pens bleed through, and even using a pencil indents onto the next page. I'd love to see the thicker paper back. I also don't love the "monthly views" that break up the weeks, but I know a lot of other people like those, so I just take those pages out, or tape them together so that I can just have week to week to week. I also miss the tear-away perforated edges this year--I'll just have to cut the bottom edge off after each week. I still love this product, and will order it again, and will hope that next year it will at least be on the heavier paper from last year!

Paper IS lighter weight but what bothers me is still no full month calendar (big enough for notes) on ONE page! They do have each month on a two page spread now but I liked the old format better.

Disappointed by the Weight
The vertical-style weekly format is perfect for me, but why, oh why, have you changed the weight of the paper? This year's is MUCH lighter than last year's, and I'm afraid it will affect what kind of pen/highlighters I'll be able to use with it.

Close, but no cigar!
I love that the 2-page calendar is integrated into the weekly pages - a real improvement over the previous year's calendar. BUT...
Why would you not put a tab on the monthly pages??? I don't just work in the present, I'm usually into the future. I have to paw through the agenda to find each 2-page monthly calendar, as it currently is presented. Now, in order for me to have tabs, you are willing to sell me $24 monthly tabs that are redundant. I'm guessing that they are the higher quality tabs that my last agenda had, but I really don't need to insert a additional calendar between the halves of the calendar pages my new 2-page agenda.
What a mess! I'm already hating my agenda, even before my first entry. Yet, I am scheduling that far ahead, so I'll keep it. I should have noticed this flaw in the photos. Unless changes are made, this will be my last of this product.
