A large aspect of my job is event coordination, so the Action Method is great for keeping actionable items/follow ups in the same area as details about the multiple events that are coming up. It's a great way for me to track what I've done and what still needs to be done.

I had been using the Action Method online, but they changed their program so that some of the features I relied on disappeared, so these paper notes are that much more utilized. And the Circa notebook is the most convenient way for me to add supplemental documents to my existing Action Method notes.

The only downsides I have are:
1. The paper smells bad. I ordered an extra set of Action Method Refills with my original order. The paper smells bad, and I thought that it might get better once I opened the package and let it "air out", but the smell has just contaminated the rest of my notebook. It's a very musty smell...
2. As noted by another reviewer, the colored portion of the action method pages do not hold fountain pen ink.

Those are my only 2 complaints. Otherwise, it's an AMAZING product that I will be reordering - it's so helpful to my workflow and efficiency. I've recommended it to so many other people. Great job putting together such a useful notebook.

Given that this is Levenger and the company is dedicated to perfection, I expected the product to be as well. The plastic covers that were shipped with the notebook were scuffed and ingrained in the plastic was a black mark.

For notebook OCD people like me, since I noticed the mark, I know it's there and it will bug me. But overall, I am excited to use the notebook to get my research project more organized.

        Comments about Levenger Circa Action Method Notebook:

        I use this notebook in my workshop to graph and mock-up projects. It's a great set for anything from taking notes in a meeting to designing a new workbench. I'm a big fan of the action notes pages. There's functionality and simplicity in its design. My favorite thing - perforated edges. IMHO, every single set of notebook pages should have perforated edges.

              I am the pickiest person that I know when it comes to planners and notebooks. Determined to make my favorite notebook into my 2015 planner, I ordered 4 of these and the monthly calendar inserts.
              Excited to spend a whole year with the gorgeous paper quality and lovely layout of the Action Method notebook. I think it's perfect.

                    I really like the idea of this notebook and organizational system. The paper stock is nice and thick. The problem is that it keeps ripping out of the notebook. I am not an aggressive scribbler, but this is from normal use. I am bummed that I have to have a 2nd folder for the pages that end up falling out.

                          As a first time user of the Circa products I am very excited to use this notebook. The paper and printing is very high quality and makes project planning fun and professional. I get asked about it when others see me using it and I enjoy showing it off.

                          Very great product and I look forward to learning how to better use it.

                                            Trust me, I am picky when it come to finding the perfect notebook. I could spend hours in an office-supply store on my quest for the best notebook. I took a leap of faith by purchasing this product online; I could not be happier.

                                            Levenger has thought of everything with this product:
                                            - Sturdy, clear covers to protect the interior
                                            - Flexible notebook can be folded back
                                            - Ease of use: pages can easily be added, rearranged, or removed
                                            - Refill packages in a variety of formats
                                            - The lines and dots are not too dark, pen stands out
                                            - You do not have to worry about wire-spiral notebooks getting bent or ripping paper

                                            I would recommend this product to anyone!

                                                        I am still figuring out how to use this more often, but the paper quality and structure is great. It has given me the ability to organize my thoughts better. I'm hoping to also use this for my school classes.
