    so glad i bought this!!!

    Got this as a gift for someone. I looked at a lot of other leather journals, the Italian leather ones bn also carries, which are beautiful, but bulky and a bit over the top in their design. I couldn't find this in store, so was a little skeptical getting it online, but so glad I did. This journal costs half as much and is much more practical. It is the perfect size for writing in and looks gorgeous. The leather feels really nice and the gilded edge adds a very nice touch. Still feels luxurious without being over the top or overwhelming. Feels and looks like something you can actually use. Very classic look, feels similar to Moleskine products. Can't wait to give this to my bf, best birthday present ever. P.S. the journal in the photo has a black bookmark, mine came with white. It doesn't bother me, but wanted to let you know just in case.

    We are on our 4th set of this journal. We buy two every year and the serve us well. They are soft and flexible to open completely during note taking. The cover is firm enough to hold and write at the same time. The paper is a lovely bonded cream with gold edging. It's nice to see this product available year after year. It is classy without being over designed.

    The product line of Journals at Barnes & Noble is outstanding. This is my third purchase of a Journal. I have always been amazing at the quality and prices. I use my journal for my business. I enter my ideas, and key information that I can review at another time. This source of ideas and inspiration has made my business thrive. Thank you Barnes & Noble for making my life better.

    I believe writing in a journal is important for posterity. My first journal was cheap, but it did the trick. I wanted something a little more formal this time around, but I still can't afford something great. I was so excited when I got this journal, and I can't wait to finish my other one, so that I may start this new one! I love the gold on the outside of the pages! The space for writing is perfect.

    The Best Journal/Notebook I've Ever Seen/Had

    This journal book is remarkable. I personally recommend to anyone that wants to have a book in their hands that makes them feel like they are holding onto something special. lol. Seriously. It feels good, looks good, and even smells good (I love the smell of leather). And with the bookmark ribbon and the gold tip pages, it's just a luxurious book to flip through and write on. This would be a great gift for anyone that you think is special. Otherwise, don't give it to anyone else. lol.
