I have purchased many of these wonderful journals over the past 10 years from B&N and write in them constantly with a fountain pen. However, over the past 1.5 yrs or so, it seems that the manufacturer has switched to a different porous paper. My fountain ink lines aren't crisp any longer. The ink feathers and soaks into the paper, making thicker letters that are hard to read. I've tried to call up B&N but know one knows about it. I'd miss the old journals .

I keep a journal and it's difficult finding one that has enough pages to record my thoughts/activities for every day of the year. Not a problem with this journal, which has 400 pages - more than enough. In fact, last year (2008) I bought the same brand of journal and I completed the year with 4 pages to spare. It's also quite sturdy.

I love this journal, it's large and has lined pages that take a fountain or quill pen very well, this is a very nice large journal with a soft leather cover. It's spine is a little stiff at first but it softens well with use.

It's gorgeous. It takes fountain pen and marker and leaves no ghosting. One of the best journals I have run into for a long time. I am definitely purchasing more.

There are many things I like about this journal. It has over 380 available pages. That means I am not starting a new journal frequently. The quality of the paper is very good. The size of the pages is large enough to be comfortable writing in it. I like the gold ribbon that I can use to mark where I am in the journal. Th only thing I don't like about it, which is why I deducted one star from my review, is that the cover is leather- which does not make this vegetarian journalist pleased. Finally, the price for the journal, given how many pages it contains, seems reasonable.

Disappointed. I ordered this journal because I wanted the higher number of pages and I wanted a high quality leather journal. When I took the journal out of the sealed plastic casing it was shipped in, I started to thumb through it. Then, looking at the page edges, I noticed a weird red smudge. I thought, uh oh, what did I have on my hands? So I washed my hands, then handled the journal, and more red smudges. It turns out there is some sort of bright red coloring coming off of the leather. Lipstick red. I rubbed the journal down with a paper towel, and I wish I could post pictures, because it is like someone rubbed lipstick all over it. Then I dampened another paper towel. Turned that one red and pink. Then another dry paper towel. Finally I grabbed an old towel--a real one--and kept rubbing. I think I might have most of the weird dye stain off of the journal. I'm so glad I wasn't wearing a nice shirt when I handled this journal. It is cheap, dyed, and cheaply stamped with a texture to texturize the journal. This is NOT a nice quality leather bound journal. I see that most of the other reviews are REALLY old. They must have changed manufacturers or something. Look elsewhere. This is NOT the nice $30.00 leather journal I thought I would be getting--I just paid the price for a cheap, badly dyed journal. A final little PS is that some of the stitching is frayed and not properly finished. I had to trim one thread and I hope it doesn't unravel. Not good quality. Look elsewhere.

My husband and I purchased this journal when I was pregnant so I could write down my experiences throughout the pregnancy.  After we lost our daughter, I have recently just started writing in the journal to/for my daughter, and for myself.  So far, I love the journal.  It is very sturdy and well made.  It is also beautiful.  I am already planning to order more so that I can continue my writings to her through the years.  Thank you for this wonderful product.

To answer another reviewer's questions: this journal has 200 individual pages, with the front and back adding up to 400; and it DOES have a ribbon page marker. I realize that review is quite old, but I'm sure other users will benefit from this being here. As for the journal itself, it's quite nice, the paper is crisp and holds ink marvelously.

I have tried many different ways of journaling...never was satisfied. Not sure why I bought this journal other than it looked like a good one to purchase. I have never been happier since I started using it. I keep just about everything in it...from journaling to activities I did during the day and things I need to remember day to day. Plenty of room between lines to write, my ink doesn't bleed through and, oh, so many pages. I recommend this journal to anyone who is serious about journaling and who simply needs to keep up with stuff.
