Circa Rhodia Annotation Ruled Notebook
Further Enhances the Circa Experience
Having been a fan of both the Levenger Circa system, and Rhodia Clairefontaine paper, I was thrilled to see these two products combined together like this. After having tried out my new notebook, I couldn't be happier with the experience, and I've already purchased the pack of 300 sheets of the Rhodia Circa Clairefontaine paper to fill up my Circa Bomber Jacket Notebook. I wrote up a more detailed review with more pictures and a writing sample that can be found here:

Classy and Practical
I have many notebooks that I use for ongoing classes, lectures and teachings. They need to be able to fit into a large purse (3 ring notebooks do not!). I had been stumped before the circa system. I have the benefits of a spiral notebook as well as the versatility of a 3 ring binder. Adding to that the extra large plastic covers hold handout sheets keeping them protected. My small complaint is that as I turned the pages back while taking notes they sometimes pulled out. They were easy to replace and I think with some practice I can mitigate that happening. I am looking forward to expanding my use of the entire circa system. I great find indeed.

I wanted this Circa for the orange cover...
...instead I got an orange piece of paper with clear plastic covers...which started to crease inside of a week from being moved around when I opened and closed the notebook. I wanted a hard orange plastic cover.
I am very sad about this as I have owned Levenger items for decades and they still look like new. Have to say, they REALLY MISSED THE MARK WITH THIS ONE. Don't buy into the Rhodia deal as there are other circas on the site that will last longer.
This experience has really made me concerned about purchasing the customer/creative looking covers as I can't afford to spend another $30 on flimsy paper.

Perfect for Depositions, Hearings & Trials
The Circa Rhodia Annotation Ruled Notebook is perfect for note taking at depositions, hearings, and trials ... and, it holds important written materials for easy access. I bought a number of the Rhodia notebooks, and added some accessories to a few of the notebooks, which increased their utility enormously.

My favorite binder
This binder is the perfect size; I carry 2 in my brief case covering multiple subjects.

As a long time customer of Levenger, I thought this would be up to their usual standards, but was disappointed. The design was great, but the paper did not stand up to my fountain pen, had almost constant bleed through. I wanted to try the Circa line, and the idea is a good one, but I find I'm back to looking for something else.

I love my Circa notebook!
I am loving my Circa Rhodia notebook! I work full time, am enrolled in a post-master's program, and I am completing an internship this Fall. I needed a notebook system that could keep all of my papers and notes organized and in one place for easy access. I am so happy I decided to purchase this notebook. My employment and educational life is neatly organized together. In addition, this Circa notebook looks beautiful- professional and put together, unlike a spiral notebook or binder. If you are deciding whether or not to buy, I wholly recommend it!
(Don't forget to buy a Circa punch too :)

Circa + Rhodia + Clairefontaine paper = Wonderful! I bought this because I had nearly back-to-back conferences and knew that I would need to be taking copious notes. I'm a long-time Circa fan and this paper seemed an ideal addition. It has been receiving rave reviews for excellent reasons. This paper is far superior to the reviews. Get it, use it, love it. Absolutely worth every penny. If you use fountain pens (Visconti 'Homo Sapiens' for those conferences) this paper is what you've been searching for - all glide, no bleed through. Added to the Circa format, this paper is a true winner. Go order, I'll wait.

Circa + Rhodia = Mid-Lifesaver!
Never the most organized person, I find as I get older I'm more apt to misplace things, and my old method of grabbing the nearest scrap of paper to write business notes, reminders, to-do lists on--and then not being able to find it when I needed it--was driving me round the bend. My Circa notebook keeps it all in one spot; I remove pages as they are no longer needed, and add pages as I need them; and the annotation column gives me space to delineate notes like action items, phone numbers, important dates, etc. I may be doddery, but now I'm orderly!

I love Rhodia paper and I love the Circa notebook system. What could be better? Rhodia graph paper. Please Levenger could you begin to offer Rhodia graph paper for the Circa system? Engineers use Circa too!
