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.

Phenomenal gilded edges makes for beautiful piece
This is a phenomenal use. Of blank space. As a ledger, there could be none more pure. The thick paper, with its gilded edges makes it just a beautiful piece. The personalization of it, made it even more of a special item with intrinsic value. I own dozens of levenger items and most are made to be with you for as long as you are willing to use it, a lifetime if necessary, even longer in some cases. There have been a lot to inherit levenger items, or more so than most would think. They just tend to build products that can last a hundred years and more. If I did not have the personalization, I would include pictures, otherwise, just a beautiful piece. Could not say it enough!

My husband and I both retired within the past year and a half. We've taken several cross-country trips since then, and it finally dawned on me that I should be documenting our travels. Oh, I've scribbled a few notes in whatever tablet was handy, but then I can't find them when I want to refer to them. Where did we buy that turquoise necklace again? What was the name of that great restaurant we ate at (coming AND going) in that tiny town in the Texas Panhandle? This book will be perfect for the job. Too big to lose track of, but small enough to fit in the door pocket of the car so it's close at hand. And its quality provides a feeling of permanence. Perhaps our grandkids will read about our little excursions some day! Can't wait to hit the road again.

Good Solid Journal
As I am getting older, I am making an effort to "journal". I have been searching for the right one. So far this seems to be it! The margin is a nice addition for adding the entry date, and to make notations as I reflect on what I have written. Of course the real deal, is the PRICE!

I bought this journal to keep track of my business letters (Thank you notes, letters, etc). It is very durable and looks great! I plan on buying more for gifts!
