Circa Annotation 14 Ruled Notebook
Worth the price
I really like this notebook for two reasons, one of which is that I can write on both sides of the pages with my pen and the paper is thick enough that the ink doesn't leak through. The second is, while plastic, the cover is durable enough that I can have it in my bag every day with everything else that's in there and it doesn't fall apart like the office-supplied notepads do.

I have purchased several products from Levenger, i.e. iPad cases, folios, messenger bag, etc. but this was my first experience with Circa. I am a rabid note-taker at church. I find that I retain information and focus better when I'm taking notes. Having previously purchased the Freeleaf Annotation Ruled note pads, I needed a way to organize the notes I had accumulated.
I had been wanting to try the Circa system, but felt the price was a little steep. When I received the email notice offering 30 percent off, I figured now was the time. What a great decision on my part AND a great product from Levenger!!!
I love the ability to add and remove pages, as well as organize them to my liking. I also purchased some of the dividers. I used the Circa Notebook less than two weeks and was hooked. I've already ordered and received a Circa Smooth Silver notebook (with pockets).
The quality of the paper can't be beat! No bleed-through...and an amazingly smooth writing surface. Can't wait for next Sunday!

I keep a few of these notebooks with me in my recording studio. They are perfect for songwriting because notes can get quite messy when inspiration is happening... But at the end of a good writing session, I can pull out the unnecessary pages, shuffle around the "keeper" pages, and go home with a clean, organized notebook (and hopefully a solid song or two!). It's Controlled Chaos for Artists!

Great Intro to Circa
This notebook has great quality paper with durable covers. I am using this with the storyboard and Rhodia meeting refills. For my needs the 1 inch circa discs work best. It makes writing more fun.

Circa Notebook Letter size
I decided to purchase this notebook for the reason I am the secetary in a club at school. I wanted a good notebook to take minutes with. I have purchased a monthly planer and I use it everday. So this is the place to go to for a very nice notebook. Even had my name placed on the cover. Thank you, Levenger for having a nice group of products.

Great Notebook System
I love the Circa System. I have a notebook for each client I see. I am able to switch the pages around easily and take notes at a meeting. If I have to give the client some information, it tears out easily. No three ring notebooks to juggle, and the notebook folds flat.

I hate using spiral-bound notebooks to take notes for class. I've always wished that I could move the pages around, and I get really irritated when I have those leftover sheets at the end of a notebook - they're not enough for another class the next quarter, but it's enough that I wished I could take them out and add them on to a new notebook so that it's not a waste.
I stumbled upon Levenger notebooks as I was searching for a solution to this problem. With this notebook, I can do everything that I wished I could do with regular notebooks! I can even keep all of my notes in one notebook, as I just add blank pages whenever I run out of space for a particular subject.
Even better is their deal for this particular notebook - buy two and get them both for a cheaper price. I love it.

I've been wanting one of these for about 5 years; just being out of college, I coudn't justify the expense. Finally, I asked for it for my birthday.
I can't believe I spent the first 5 professional years of my life without it! I coordinate events, staffing, budgeting and nothing else has been able to keep me organized.

Ideal for teaching kindergarten!
(I'm writing this review for my Mom:) I teach kindergarten, and every day I need a full page for each student, as I write out notes/lesson plans/etc. about the child. The Circa system and the annotation margin are so incredibly helpful, as I can write the child's name in the annotation margin (and make other notes as necessary in the margin as well), and I write the day's lessons/accomplishments in the ruled portion. What's so helpful about the Circa page design is that I can pull out an individual page and take it to a meeting, then put it back into the notebook when I'm done. I just love it!

Great Project Organization
This is the best system I've ever found for project management. When one phase of a project outgrows the main notebook, I just create a new one.
I use the tab dividers as well, and have a portable punch at work so I can add non-Circa papers to the notebooks.
I also customize covers using Microsoft Publisher and printing them on 32-pound presentation paper for durability.
I keep all my notebooks in sorters on my credenza so they're at hand.
