I hardly write by hand as I prefer to type or dictate memos, to-do list and ideas. However, there are time when writing something down is needed eg: battery is dead on electronic device. I am very happy I found this notebook, simple and portable. It is sturdy, it doesn’t take to much space on my purse and the lines are spaced well. I was able to write with pen and pencil and it both show very well. I highly recommend this product.

The Notebook was provided by Northbooks in order to facilitate my review, I was not compensated. This review is Desafio In The City honest opinion about this product.
