I've journaled in everything imaginable over the years, and this is one of my favorites. For me, fountain-pen friendly paper is essential as I often write with vintage, flexible nibs that lay down a fair amount of ink. This paper is lovely; the journal size is just right, and the binding and sewing allows one to write with equal ease on either side of the spine. The annotation border is useful but can be ignored. Its a winner-and I will probably buy more for use at the office.

Just what I was looking for. Look is elegant and construction is high quality assuring that the ledger will endure for generations. Wish the personalization were larger and more durable as mine is already fading with only 1 month use.

Great Author's Journal
I am a Thriller Writer and one of those who prefers to write creatively in longhand. The Ledgerdomain Journal has just the right dimensions and page count (~200) for my writing. Fill two of these in long hand and I've got got a first draft of my novel! I have used lined accounting journals before, but the Ledgerdomain is a little more upscale and just right.

Compact. Neat. Inspiring. I anticipate the joy of reading the forthcoming short stories that the sturdy covers will hold. The recipient was delighted with this small, "right" gift!

My associate called me upon receiving this journal as a gift and while he was touched by the gesture his comments about the product could not go unnoticed. He was impressed with the beauty of the book, the quality, the detail of the monogram - all inspiring him to put it to good use. Having purchased Levenger items for myself and many as gifts, I trust in the quality of the product and feel confident that it will be presented in a way reflective of your style and mine!

A great gift idea
I purchased this journal as a gift for a friend who writes when she travels, which is often. She is thrilled with this product. It is monogrammed, sturdy, and looks very classy. I'll be ordering one for myself soon!

I manage a number of clients and keep detailed notes. To keep details for each client confidential, I maintain a journal for each client. This keeps my notes concise and easy to find. Including my initials on the cover adds the level of professionalism that a want to exhibit for my clients.

Exactly What I Was Looking For
Not long ago, I saw a 5-year journal in a shop, and, while I liked the idea, I didn't like that particular journal. Thankfully, there's the internet. After a little shopping around online, I found this site, and this journal.
I'll admit, i was a little hesitant about the price -- not that $30 seems unreasonable, just that $30 without seeing it first, feeling it, holding it -- well, I had to think about it. Over the next few days, I kept returning to look at it, and, after reading other reviews, I decided to give it a try.
I am very pleased with the journal, though, for some reason I was expecting it to be larger. I'd seen the dimensions listed, but, still, was expecting it to be a bit larger. But, it isn't a big deal. The size is standard journal size -- smaller than a hardcover book, more like a large-sized trade paperback. It's a good size to carry with you.
The pages are a nice thickness: the ink doesn't show through (I just use a ball-point), and having used fountain pens in the past, I think the ink wouldn't show through if you used a fountain pen.
The binding is superb -- sewn well, yet lays flat for easy writing. The attached ribbon bookmark is a nice feature.
The only negative would be the lack of color choices -- there are no choices. It's just a neutral brownish-grey. It's not bad, But, I'd like a nice, rich blue.
I liked it so much, that I ordered another one, just to be sure I'd have one 5 years from now when this one is filled.
