I love these notebooks for several reasons:
1. The paper is excellent - thicker than many competitors (I'm lookin' at you, M*leskin) and lovely and smooth to write one. ...view more>
2. I love the dot grid because it helps keep my writing straight without feeling confining if I want to draw something.
3. The cover and components are great. The material is really nice to the touch, and the bookmark, closure strap, and internal pocket are very functional.
4. They come in gorgeous colors.
5. Last but not at all least: these notebooks lay perfectly flat when open. The importance of this cannot be overstated!
As for Atlas Stationers, their service is excellent and I was amazed how quickly these notebooks shipped to me. Would certainly recommend (and will keep coming back). view less
